These are some photographs I took on the London Summer Photowalk that I ran as part of my photography training business. More to follow as I shot nearly a roll on my Olympus XA too, which are awaiting developing.

The walk started from London Bridge train station, right under the Shard and followed a 2.5 mile route around Borough, finishing at the wonderful George Inn on Borough High Street.

If you're looking for an interesting photowalk (or just walk), then maybe consider this route.

Points of Interest:

1)    London Bridge/The Shard
3)    Southwark Cathedral
4)    Borough Market
5)    The Hop Exchange
6)    Cross Bones Cemetery
7)    Red Cross Garden
8)    Mint Street Park (we skipped this)
10)    Little Dorrit Park
11)    Trinity Church Square
12)    Dickens Fields
13)    Tabard Gardens
14)    Borough High Street
15)    The King’s Arms, Newcomen St
16)    The George Inn, Borough High St

If you're walking as a group and taking your time, perhaps having something to eat at Borough Market first and stopping to take photos along the way, you can expect this walk to take about 3 hours.

This walk follows some of these landmarks and points of interest on the Secret London website walk for Borough. This is a very useful resource for walks and for information about the various points of interest that this walk takes in.

I adapted the walk to head to a few other places too. Please feel free to share the Google link for the walk or this post, but please don't share the photos without permission. Thank you.

By here we had completed the walk and were now waiting for a cab to go out to dinner.

We headed down the river to the Mexican restaurant Wahaca, but unfortunately there was a 1.5 - 1.45 hr wait for table so ended up having an adequate meal at Wagamamas. Wahaca in the past has been superb and good value but we were to hungry to wait ;-)

If you're doing this route and plan it right, it's a nice walk down the river instead of taking a cab. It would probably take about 30 minutes to walk.

Arriving near Festival Hall and a shot from the cab window almost looks like it could be Los Angeles!
