Whilst this panel is not on the Jubilee Walkway, it looks out over the Thames, once a great thoroughfare of London, along which many boats pass daily. From here there's a fine view of London's fast-changing skyline on the South Bank of the Thames.
The Jubilee Walkway includes the length of the South Bank from Lambeth Bridge to Tower bridge, which is the Queen's Walk and was opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 7th December 1988.
Directly opposite is the site of the 1953 Festival of Britain, from which emerged the Royal Festival Hall, and some years later the National Theatre as major cultural attractions on the South Bank. Jubilee Gardens was laid out there in 1977.
Other features of the South Bank include the Sea Container Building, the headquarters of GMTV (formerly London Weekend Television) and a recent addition is the BA London Eye, which was the most successful of a number of Milliennium projects.
Many of London's notable landmarks are on the horizon, from the Wren Churches to the Houses of Parliament, and, on this side of the river, stands Somerset House, recently re-opened as a museum, and housing the famous Turner collection.
