Upon my arrival at the Queens Walk I was astonished to see all street performers wearing various types of costumes. This place was also full of tourists, locals, and a food market! Despite the terrible weather, I still enjoyed experiencing the ambiance of the Queens walk and the scenery as it’s overlooking the River Thames, Westminster Bridge, the Big Ben and the London Eye. The pedestrian access is right by the river Thames of Southbank that allows you to sit down and watch people walk pass, watch all the performers or just relax while you have a coffee. When I was there it rained quite frequently so I headed towards the food stores to buy something to eat and a coffee. I had to eventually go inside a souvenir shop to escape the heavy rain...London weather...sigh. The Queens Walk is quite a long pathway and it does not have much shade for people to hide from the rain so make sure that you bring a rain coat. As you may have guessed, I did not stay very long as it rained continuously causing disruptions with my travel plans (and photo opportunities). So instead, I headed towards London Eye and the Westminster Bridge.
