Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London

This week I continued my journey along the river to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, starting off in Vauxhall – where I filmed a few weeks ago, and passing by Lambeth Palace, the official London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

On the slipway in Vauxhall, I spotted the London Duck Tours amphibious vehicle, which picks up passengers in Vauxhall and ferries them along the River Thames to Westminster.

Although I knew these vehicles existed, I had never seen one before – and now, suddenly they were everywhere, as you’ll see in the video!

  1. I LOVE those boat-bus-duck things!!! If I ever manage to visit London again, I will definitely be on one of those! Thank you so much for sharing these videos, Julia. They let me see and enjoy the kind of thing I would be photographing myself if I was there, like the beautiful architecture you discover when you look up and zoom. I hope that someday you’ll create a category called ‘London’ with photos and videos so that I can plan where to go (I love those upended boat statues!) and cut down the overwhelm. (I’m afraid my highly sensitive symptoms go haywire and I get brainfried and exhausted every time I visit London – no idea why it happens there and not other European cities where I lived and worked. Weird.)

    What a good idea, Janice – I’ve now added the category “London” so you can now see all of the posts about London in one place. 🙂
    London is a busy city – more so, somehow, than other European cities I’ve visited – so I quite understand how you get brain fried and exhausted visiting London. I’m quite enjoying visiting a small area at a time, so hopefully my adventures will give you (and other folk) ideas of places to visit when you’re next in London!
