Afternoon stroll from Somerset House 🏛, passing through the Strand and crossing the Golden Jubilee Bridge from Embankment to Southbank.
Somerset House, London’s arts centre, is the starting point for today’s afternoon walk. It’s a quiet corner, built on the foundations of one of Europe’s most beautiful courtyards. We then take a walk down the Strand, London’s first street with a numbered address, before crossing the River Thames from Embankment to Southbank, one of the city’s liveliest areas for alfresco dining and drinking.
