London from a height!

I thought it would be fun to combine climbing some of London's ace monuments with a bit of a photo walk so we could capture London from up high!

What better way than combining a visit to St Pauls, the Monument and the Tower Walkway ending with a beverage at a rooftop bar!

The itinerary starts at 10.30am at St Pauls - checking out the Whispering Gallery and inside the Cathedral. The price for tickets into St Pauls is £16 and I know not everyone will want to do this part.

For those who would like to join after - we'll head to the rooftop of One New Change for views out to London between midday and 12.30pm where we can met those who prefer the later part of the tour!

We'll then walk from St Pauls to Monument where we will climb the 300 steps to the top of the Monument.

The Monument costs £3. (or you can buy a joint Monument and Tower Bridge ticket for £9.

After the Monument we'll walk to Tower Bridge for a stroll across the walkways. Separate entry is £8 for the Tower Walkways (or you can get the combined £9 Monument/Tower Bridge ticket)

We'll then head along the Southbank - there's a newish bar near the HMS Belfast we can have a refreshment in and we can head to a nearby pub afterwards.

Anyone interested in the St Pauls whispering gallery needs to purchase their ticket in advance so we can gain fast track entry.

We can get the tickets for the Monument and Tower Bridge Walkways on the day.

This meet-up is also over on the IgersLondon meet-up page - but thought it would be wise to share it here as well in case peeps hadn't seen it.

    Really enjoyed it, legs are just coming back to life ;)
    Was wondering where the best place to get the Olioclip lens for the iPhone 4S, quite fancy trying some fish eye effect shots of the Autumal leaves in Richmond Park

      If you want to buy, you can get it from their website olloclip.com (they list local resellers), or the Apple Store, or Amazon.

    Did you you see the weather yesterday? We were indeed very very lucky on Saturday. Good to see everybody, it was a great walk. As for my leg, I actually starting to feel the worst 'today' for some reason, just in time when I need them to walk to work :)
