Circle Line Walk – Day 1
Victoria to St. James’s Park
Walking Eastwards on Victoria Street takes me past Westminster Cathedral and some tower blocks.
St. James’s Park to Westminster
There are many famous building visible from Parliament Square. Westminster Cathedral is one of them.
Westminster to Embankment
The next three station are all along the River Thames so I follow the River Northwards. The London Eye one of the dominant features on the opposite River Bank. A War memorial is on this side of the river.
Embankment to Temple
I continue along the Embankment passing this sphinx and other impressive buildings.
Temple to Blackfriars
Further along the Thames are the H.Q.S. Wellington and a dragon.
Blackfriars to Mansion House
I walk past the College of Arms and reach the Millenium Bridge. From here you get a good view of the front of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Mansion House to Cannon Street
The distance between these two stations is tiny.
Cannon Street to Monument
Monument station isn’t far either – the tube stations are packed in quite closely in this area.
