And closing Sthk Bridge down on Sat to make a massive dining room/party was an excellent idea.

The whole festival also highlighted something that we've all known for's all happening on the South Bank. The North Bank's a morgue

Yes, I agree, it was a brilliant festival - reminded me of why I live where I do - On Saturday morning I nipped across the river to the flower festival at Middle Temple - it was the origin of the 'Chelsea' flower show I believe - but so much less crowded and more pleasant. Then walked back across the Millenium Bridge and had a really nice lunch before watching the Great River Race then a bit of shopping and a visit to Tate Modern. Topped it all off with the fab fireworks last night - Now I have to buckle ddown and do my housework after what felt like a mini-holiday! Long live SE1. (Before anyone gets pedantic I KNOW Middle Temple is not SE1 but very accessible nevertheless.

It was fun to see Tower Bridge open yesterday--I haven't seen that before. I walked onto it to take a picture of the festivities and thought I might as well do the tower tour as long as I was there. Quite interesting, and a great clear day to see the view in all directions. I imagine the Eye was a good bet yesterday too.
