London – Walk to Tower Bridge at Night

London – Walk to Tower Bridge at Night

London is a fantastic city for an urban walk during the day, but in some ways it is even prettier all lit up after dark. We especially love walking along the Thames pathway in the evening.

My parents came with us from Old Weston to RAF Molesworth (an American military base a few fields away from our village). Then we continued the rest of the walk back home as we wanted to keep walking. This post will give you a taste of what it’s like to…
