London photos

Friday 6th
A week of high winds and heavy rain, right across the country, has cleared in London today, giving us sun and blue skies - just the weather for taking some photographs. (double-click on each photo to see a larger size).

The Palace of Westminster, south face, seen from Victoria Tower Gardens. This is the end of the building which the Lords occupy.

Directly across the Thames from Westminster is St Thomas' Hospital, London's largest. Beyond sits the London Eye. Now 12 years old, it has carried over 30 million passengers.

The Palace of Westminster, viewed from Lambeth Bridge. All the parts of the building visible in this photograph date from 1840-1870, designed by architect Charles Barry.
