The Thames After Dark: South Bank and Bankside

I’ve been riverside after dark this week and dined in The Wharf Restaurant on South Bank overlooking magnificent views of the Thames. I’ve also visited the best of riverside bars & pubs on Bankside for a glass of red wine, with even more amazing views of St Paul’s Cathedral across the Thames. Check out my article The Thames After Dark in the April print edition of What’s Hot London? magazine which goes into detail about the best of wining, dining, galleries, theatre cinema etc. after dark along the river.

Claude Monet: Painting in London

ART: Claude Monet visited London in 1870, 1899, 1900 & 1901 and painted the fog around parliament, Hyde Park & the Thames. He commented on London’s fog & unpredictable weather: “Here comes the sun again, though, is it going to stay this time?” Click link for my article
