This was such a fun afternoon creating Tower Bridge family portraits. The area around Tower Bridge is one of my favourite locations for my London vacation photography sessions. And it’s an area I return to regularly with families on holiday in this fantastic city.
Apart from Tower Bridge itself, which in my opinion is the most photogenic in London, there are so many interesting surrounding areas.
The warehouses of Shad Thames
One of those is Shad Thames a historic riverside street next to Tower Bridge, lined with converted warehouses, which look fabulous in photos.
From Tower Bridge you can then walk along the river towards London Bridge, taking in more fascinating sights along the way. There’s City Hall an iconic building, home to the Mayor of London’s offices. Then across the river you can see the Tower of London, and the city of London. So different but equally wonderful in photos.
The fabulous ceiling of Hay’s Galleria
Walking on past HMS Belfast we reach another place I love to photograph – Hay’s Galleria. With its impressive vaulted ceiling it’s a great location for photos and you can also grab a bite to eat in one of its cafes or eateries.
Fun family portraits at Borough Market
And talking about food – if you keep walking beyond London Bridge, you’ll reach Borough Market, London’s premier food market. Not only is it a wonderful place to eat, but it’s fabulous for some fun, quirky family photographs.
More Tower Bridge family portraits
I hope you enjoyed my virtual tour around Tower Bridge and along the river. And I hope you like the photo of this fabulous fun family strolling happily across the grass, with the spectacular backdrop of Tower Bridge behind them. More photos to follow soon from this London vacation photography session.
