Route Description

This section of National Route 4 starts from the iconic Tower Bridge and weaves around the Thames through various parks and past docks to Maritime Greenwich.

Linking together two of London's leading visitor areas, this route has plenty to see and do. Tower Bridge itself, as well as the nearby Tower of London are both open to visitors. On most days you can also look around the steel and glass City Hall building.

Heading east from here, the route goes along narrow streets, where disused waterfront warehouses have been converted into sought after apartments. At Bermondsey Wall the route goes along a historic alley way with old pubs and buildings.

Crossing the Rotherhithe Peninsular, the route passes through relatively new housing developments and parklands. This area was once dominated by docks but was transformed in the 20th century with only Greenland Dock and South Dock remaining.
