Why locals recommend it
The Thames has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world, and each day the outgoing tide reveals artifacts, from medieval clay pipes to fragments of Victorian porcelain.

It’s very muddy, so bring waterproof boots or Wellies, and a spare pair of trousers wouldn’t go amiss.

Church
“I would recommend you visit this beautiful Cathedral, where Princess Diana and Charles were married. Fact - The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London. Its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, has dominated the skyline for over 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1967. The dome is among the highest in the world. St Paul's is the second largest church building in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral. ”

This is even free to access. From this lookout, you can enjoy views to the East, North and West. As sunset is often across the river this makes it one of the best places to go in London for sunset as well as into the blue hour.”
