Waterloo Bridge is not all that great, but it is famous. Take a stroll along this bridge and see the London skyline, gratis. It's not a tourist trap and you won't be one lost among thousands<

There are lovely views both up and down the river with so many iconic buildings to see. Usefully links the Strand with the South Bank arts complex.

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
