Walking the Queens walk

Have just had a lovely 24 hours in London, mainly to go and see
 the Matisse Cut Out exhibition at the Tate Modern, which is stunning, 
I did my dissertation on that period of his work for my A-Level Art.
 So it was a must see!
Got into Waterloo far too early and so decided to walk. Beautiful morning, so it was an absolute pleasure
Some very classy (!) graffiti in the skate park

It really was absolutely beautiful pottering down, do love the lamps, with their fishes wrapped round the base, and a very iconic sky line....

and the odd celebrity spotting, the diver Tom Daley on a photo shoot

The gorgeous silver birch wood in front of the vast converted power station 
that is the Tate Modern, a rather delicious contrast.

Though the trees you can see the Millennium Bridge leading over to St Pauls

The new (ish) Shakespeare's Globe, would love to go there for a play one day.

Sir Francis Drakes Golden Hind, remarkably small, considering how far it traveled!

Then finally seeing Tower Bridge behind HMS Belfast.

A stunning historical walk, you must do it.
