The 'Riverside Walk' is not an attraction, and I am not sure it is even worth visiting! The river looks nice, but not sure the poor graffiti on some of the surrounding brick-work adds to the charm!

Beautiful old buildings and quiet part of city to have a walk and take in very old architecture. The use of flint stone is very apparent.

You can park either near the Adam & Eve pub behind the cathedral or you can probably park at the Red LIon pub on Bishopsgate. Hope you can make it there, lovely at the moment with the daffodils out.
