Tooley St in South London connects London Bridge to St. Saviour’s Dock, it’s as exciting as it is long and whichever way you choose to walk down, you’re in for a treat.
Today, was a perfect autumn day in London: unexpectedly warm and beautifully sunny. A work engagement took me down to London Bridge station and a right turn down Tooley St, SE1, the joy! first up, The London Dungeon- I don’t do scary but the entrance to this place is quite something
Next up, the Hayes Galleria and ‘More London’ building
#88 Tooley st is the historic pub ‘The Shipwrights Arms’
Tower Bridge rd was closed for traffic but open for ships! the result: no traffic down one side and an endless queue down the other
The old Fire Brigade Station is now ‘Brigade’ bar and restaurant
And finally, a glimpse backwards sums up this rd, the marriage of old and new- The old buildings and arches of London Bridge station and London’s newest ( and tallest) landmark, The Shard
