Waterloo Bridge – Amazing Free View

Waterloo Bridge – Amazing Free View

The views from Waterloo Bridge in london are quite spectacular, especially so at night. To come to London and not stand on this bridge and soak up the amazing free views should be punishable with a 6 month stay in the Tower of London!

And what about the views…looking west you will see the Embankment, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Change your view to the East and you will find St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin, and an urban sprawl of ugly high rise buildings that are perfect for blocking out the sunshine! Along the South Bank you have the National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall and the London Eye. And on top of that you have the mighty River Thames and much, much more…

The best times to go for a stroll along Waterloo Bridge are early in the morning, sunset or late at night. And to make the occasion even more memorable take your girl or guy with you and soak up the views together.

Waterloo Bridge is not the prettiest or most famous bridge in the ‘big smoke’, but it offers quite probably the best view from any bridge in London. Why waste money on a trip on the London Eye, when you can stand on Waterloo Bridge for free soaking up the delights of one of the greatest cities in the world. And you don’t have to queue up for an hour for the privilege…


  1. Great skyline! Love those shots, stunning view.

  2. I have to agree Waterloo Bridge does offer up some amazing views. You should see it from the top of a double decker bus at night.

  3. what a beautiful skyline. love the look of it.

  4. this is definitely a spectacular view! A definite must when in London. I’m going to use you as my ‘Frommer’ when I visit London!

  5. Fabulous shots. Love the orange (or gold?)tone at the horizon and on the higher buildings.

  6. whether in the morning, sunset or late at night, the view is absolutely amazing! I can very well imagine…
    Happy WW! 🙂

  7. I’d go if I were in London. I’m thinking that the Golden Gate in San Francisco is a pretty good match.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂
