Anglophile Friday - Along the Thames - London - Quiz

A -  Palace of Westminster 

As you can see, I'm getting this post up later than usual. When I scheduled it last night before going to bed, I forgot to change the time schedule on it. Anyway, there is so little text with it that it kinda feels like cheating. Then again, I think: Which would they rather see - more rambling from Judy or photos of London? Easy choice in my book. So, here are a few photos taken along the River Thames. I hope you'll enjoy them. And there is a reason why they have letters in front of the captions. You'll see at the end of the post.

B - Blackfriar's Bridge

 C - Old Blackfriar's Bridge Pillars


 E - Traitor's Gate, Tower of London

 F - Charing Cross Station

 G - Greater London Authority
City Hall

 H - The Eye
And County Hall

 I - The Globe Theatre

 J - The Prospect of Whitby Pub

 K - Tate Modern
and Millennium Bridge

 L - Tower Bridge

 M - Cruise Boat,
Millennium Dawn

N - ?

Feel free to try to put these in order - west to east or east to west. Any takers on this project? And yes, there's a bend in the river, so part of it will be north to south or south to north.  Is everyone totally confused now?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

How long would it take to walk from A to E?

Depends upon whether you're looking forward to shopping at the gift shop or if you've been accused of a capital crime.

thanks for my trip by chair... the only way i will see these amazing places. a lot of the names are familiar from all the reading i do. i like that city hall building.

Wonderful photos-I also am going to be a armchair traveler. There are not enough drugs out there for me to fly over the ocean waters-LOL

RURAL said...

Being such a avid reader of English history I love to see photos of those places I have only read about.

Thanks for my London tour.

Great photos Judy! Did you go on a river cruise too?

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

I always love your posts!! Your photos are beautiful!!

Pollyanna said...

Oh yes, your photos are amazing ... wish I was familiar enough to do the quiz/puzzle. When we were there the Globe was covered in visqueen, bummer. Maybe I need to go again just to see it in all its glory,right? Thanks for sharing.

These pictures actually made me shed a few tears this morning. I love England so much. I wish I could go back!

Diane said...

Great photos-- won't even attempt to put them in order. Have no idea!

I love all of these, but I think my favorite is the photo of the pub. It seems so real :)

Judy I went to London twice and I don't remember much. Once when I was about 15. The other time was in 1993. I have a terrible memory I might add.

Anyhow - I love your photo - I remember a couple of these things and of course the names of a lot.

What I think about now - is all the history that was there and all the beauty.

Wish I knew more of London's geography! I guess I have never paid much attention to what is where.
If I were to make a stab in the dark I would say A,B,C,D,E,L is at one end and G,H,K,N at the other end and F,I,J somewhere in the middle. Starting with M, of course!

Judy S. said...

Fun photos, Judy. Almost as good, but not quite, as being there! BTW your package arrived yesterday. Fabulously speedy service and of course, wonderful soap!

Unknown said...

You are so fun! I am afraid I would have to cheat and get my map!

Terri D said...

Wonderful photos, but I haven't a clue!!

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

I went there in 1999 and I don't know! A ferris wheel was there then, but I don't know if it was that one.

It sounds like a mystery daughter would have fun figuring out on Google Maps!

Great photos !!!

Dawn @ Words Of Deliciousness said...

Beautiful beautiful pictures. I would love to travel to England.

Eileen H said...

The river cruise with the commentary is wonderful. It's years since I've been on one.
