The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Met a friend in London. Walked through victoria garden. Beautiful tulips and nicely kept gardens. Embankment station literally two minutes from the gardens and can take the side streets up to the strand.

A beautiful public garden space along the Thames River, we walked through the portion behind the Savoy Hotel where Claude Monet stayed and painted his Houses of Parliament, Waterloo Bridge, and Charing Cross Bridge series of paintings during a span of 3 years (1899-1901). This park gives you an idea of his vantage point, and that's why I wanted to walk through it. There are monuments within the garden, including Memorial to Arthur Sullivan (1903), best known for his collaboration with W.S. Gilbert; Scottish poet Robert Burns; and the Imperial Camel Corps, a WWI infantry brigade. There are benches to sit upon and green space to throw down a blanket.

This is a nice place very close to Temple tube station. The garden is showing signs of no TLC lately.

This long garden next to the river is lovely to stroll. It has nice benches to sit on and enjoy a sandwich…. Some large shade trees. And, beautifully done small flower gardens.

A wonderful place to rest and stroll, while visiting the nearby sites.

Take a walk along the Victoria Embankement and you will pass the the Victoria Embankment Gardens. It faces the HQS Wellington on the River Thames.
These gardens are a series of gardens on the north side of the River Thames between Blackfriars Bridge and Westminster Bridge in London.

Good café to stop at along with a stroll through very well cultivated flower beds away from the busy roads and other attractions

These attractive gardens were once underwater as part of the wide River Thames, and were created over 150 years ago when the river was embanked.
The watergate of the long-demolished York House still stands, and shows just how wide the river used to be here.
I’ve been through here twice in the last few days and the floral beds have been spectacular, featuring especially many types of tulips.
There are plenty of seats to sit and enjoy the scene.
Numerous statues and other monuments can be found here, including to the First World War Camel Corps, Scottish poet Robert Burns and the great composer Sir Arthur Sullivan, whose most famous works with his librettist William Schwenk Gilbert were given at the nearby Savoy Theatre.

This area along the western bank of the Thames near Westminster Bridge is notable for its many important memorials to the British Armed Services and statues of remarkable historical figures.

Victoria Embankment Gardens are always impressive. Well over a year since I was last here and so good to visit again. Statutes, areas to relax and beautiful flowers everywhere.
