The top of the south end of the bridge, warders would stay here.
the north end of the bridge
the main north tower. The two top blue passageways are used for parties. Pretty interesting place to have a glass of wine and look up and down river, specially during the night.

After damn near freezing to death, we needed something nice and warm, so headed off to the Borough Market. This is a lovely market with a cornucopia of food, wine and great delicatessen. And tourists love it. Quite a bohemian and hopping look to it. Here is the full slide show.

Then comes the pies.
