A Night time Stroll in London

Lifestyle London Photography

Night time in London

After the firework display in Victoria Park on Saturday, my friend and I decided to venture into Holborn for dinner, followed by a cute night time stroll in London. I took lots of photos during our little wander, so I figured I’d share them on the blog.

We ended up walking past Somerset House, over Waterloo bridge, then along Southbank until eventually ending up at Westminster. I took a lot of photos because London is so pretty at night, especially with all the lights, so here’s a few if you’re interested in taking a look…

Somerset House

I always feel so lucky to have the beautiful Somerset House right next door to my university, I can’t wait to go ice-skating there in December. (10 points to Gryffindor if you noticed the creepy gnome in one of the top left windows!)

London Eye at Night

As much as I enjoy the night time cityscape over Waterloo bridge, I do think the London Eye looked better in blue…

Phil Edmonds

You can’t go anywhere in London without coming across a talented busker. This guy, Phil Edmonds, was pretty damn amazing. Unfortunately I didn’t have any money, and we only caught his last song of the evening, but hopefully I come across him again.

Night Time Stroll in London

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben lit up at night, but I felt like such a tourist at the time… ?

We had a lovely evening, my feet were aching so much by the time we got to Westminster (and having a broken little toe didn’t help), and just about managed to get back before the tube closed. London is busy and can be stressful during the day, so it was nice to take a peaceful walk at night with one of my closest friends.

Thanks for reading, I hope you liked my photos!

  • Oh wow so beautiful ? I remember the last time I was in London we did the same and I loved the beautiful lights as well. London is so beautiful. I can’t wait to go back now.

  • Just saw this post retweeted onto my Twitter feed so I had to check it out. Aaah, I love these photos – I’m currently on a year abroad and I really miss seeing London at this time of year, it’s always super pretty with all the lights at night and you’ve captured it so well. ♡♡♡ (Oh and by the sounds of your comment about Somerset House I’m going to take a wild guess that we go to the same uni!)

    • Thank-you so much! Haha awesome, what do you study? ?

      • I study French with Film (one of a massive TWO people in my year doing that combination), what about you?

    How gorgeous is London at night! 🙂

  • Great pictures, London is definitely the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. 🙂 I have to agree though, the London Eye looks better in blue. xx
