Old Thameside Inn
There is a fine view of the Thames, framed by Cannon Street Rail Bridge to the left, and London Bridge, rebuilt in 1973, to the right. (To approach this by foot, there are steep steps named Nancy's Steps after the fictional murder of Nancy in Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist).
A few landmarks of old London can be spotted on the horizon, including St Paul's Cathedral, built by Sir Christopher Wren between 1675 and 1710, and the Monument to the Great Fire of London of 1666.
Most of the other buildings represent the financial concerns of the City of London, many of them built in the last thirty years The reflect the ever-changing skyline of London.
Amongst these new buildings are Lloyds of London, designed by Richard Rogers in 1986, Mondial House, home of the International Telephone Exchange, built by Hubbard Ford and
By how many pubs does Old Father Thames pass? One hundred, a thousand, maybe more, but alas, he stops not for food and he stops not for wine, itís his job to meander all of the time. You can watch him as he flows by, with a glass in our hands from an inn nearby.
