Travel and Review : London Part 4 Southwark – London Bridge / Monument / Borough Market

london paris 153

400 metres away from Tower Bridge is the infamous London Bridge.

Nothing spectacular unlike the Tower Bridge.

If you can climb the hundred of stairs to the top you will get a paper certificate. Suffice to say, I did not climb to the top but you should give a try if you physically fit.

 

If crossing the London Bridge just to get to the Monument seems uninteresting, then you should NOT cross the bridge but just make your way a tad further to the west to get to the Tate Modern (free entrance to the museum)  and Shakepeares Globe Theatre.(10.50 pounds entrance fee – again inclusive with the Londonpass) or if you must eat (and it happens to be a Saturday) then make your way to the Borough Market of Southwark (just 100metres from London Bridge Tube station)

for galores of food food and more food!!!
