Views of the Shard

Starting at London Bridge right underneath the monostrosity itself (just kidding I love it really), we will walk along west along the river, cross at Southwark Bridge, and walk back east along the north bank, stopping at four or five locations to sketch, including Southwark Cathedral for those who prefer their architecture a little more traditional. We will finish the day at 4pm at the Banker pub by Cannon Street Bridge to show off our drawings and have a drink or three.

Meet at 10.45am outside the main (overground) entrance on London Bridge Street - where the [1] Way out / London Bridge Street arrow is pointing on the following map:

My number is[masked] if you need to get in touch on the day.

Current forecast is looking poor to say the least. Bring waterproofs and umbrellas and if necessary we'll just have to hide under bridges.

    Wet. Good sketching area. Next time will take my stool along with me. Plenty of corners for one.

    Wet, but fun. Walked to the Monument and Leadenhall Market, which was shut, so completely empty and therefore great for drawing, and dry.

      Good idea, although that map is a little confusing! I was thinking (1) Way out - London Bridge Street (outside). Will add something to that effect to the meetup description.
