The guided tour was well worth it! The exhibition was very neat as well. Everyone was super friendly and the tour guide was fantastic. My group was very small so it felt like a private tour. Plenty of time for pictures and questions. The only...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
