London towers old and new...

When we stopped off at Epsom we took a trip up to central London...this was our first view of the city's and Europe's tallest building 'The Shard'.It was taken from the platform at Waterloo East station where we caught the train to 'Tower Bridge'.

It was a grey day but fine for a bit of a walk along and over the Thames.

Here is the view of the impressive Shard from  Tower Bridge...

and here is the opposite bank. It is a view that includes many of the tallest and most interesting buildings in the city including the 'Walkie-Talkie',the 'Cheesegrater' and the 'Gherkin'. Interestingly the view also includes the 'White tower' of the Tower of London which at 90' was the tallest in its day.
