Shad Thames, Tower Bridge and St Katherine's Dock

I've made up a map of this trip: here

This trip will be situated around an area of the river Thames next to Tower Bridge.
Our first stop will be the historic riverside street Shad Thames. This street is dotted with restaurants and cafes and runs behind a block of converted warehouses. One of the most interesting features of this street is the walkways above that criss-cross the street.
We'll most likely stop here for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to draw then stop to get some lunch before going on to St Katherine's Dock via Tower bridge. St Katherine's Dock: our main stop, there are several subjects from this spot to choose from that are all relatively near. There is St Katherine's Dock (of course) with its boats and walk ways, there is the Tower of London, Tower bridge or the view of the south bank across the river. This area is not too busy (compared to Brick lane) and there will be a lot more space to find somewhere to sit. The most busiest part of this trip will be walking across Tower bridge. As per usual we will end the trip in a pub to share each others work. Depending on how big a group we have and how tired we are we will either go the Town of Ramsgate - a small pub which is nearer or the Captain Kidd a larger pub, but slightly further away. These are both pretty old establishments both situated along the north side of river with some nice views of the Thames.
We will be meeting for this trip outside City Hall on The Queens Walk at 10.45. As per usual I'll send out my number the day before for those that have trouble finding the group. The nearest underground station is London Bridge.
