Boats on the Thames 1

The new Tate Modern extension’s viewing galleries gives great views of the River Thames between Southwark and Blackfriars bridge. Although it’s just a short section of waterway there is a lot of activity going on plus the City of London and St Paul’s Cathedral make great backdrops.

The pictures were taken in the first week the new Tate Switch House opened to the public.
