The Embankment runs between the Palace of Westminster and Blackfriars Bridge along the River Thames. It is a very nice area for a stroll with lovely views. It's especially lovely at night when the attractions are all lighted up.
...although there is also Albert Embankment and Chelsea Embankment on other stretches of the River Thames in London.
I have reviewed it before, and would like to reiterate that it runs between Westminster Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge. Unfortunately some reviewers believe it is any or all riverside areas of the city.
I was at the Westminster end the day after...
I would recommend this as a great walk just breathing in London itself - and I mean the atmosphere and the sights and sounds
This area appeared to be really clean and well kept in addition to seeing the great architecture all around you - definitely give this a try if you are in the area
You can Walk along here and get great views of the city and take some great photographs as well as seeing such interesting sites along your way such as Cleopatras needle and just the ironwork of the lights etc
You can walk along the embankment almost from London Bridge right up to Westminster. Enjoy the views onto and across the River Thames. Take in the monuments along the way e.g. Cleopatra's Needle. Walk under the bridges. All very nice and equally attractive at night.
