Where to Stay and Morning Activity
The Royal Horseguards 
Built in the 19th century in French chateau-style, this newly remodeled luxury riverside hotel in Whitehall is ground-zero for riverside rambles. Insist on a room with a Thames view.

Thames Walk 
Walk the southern bank of the Thames from Westminster to London Bridge, passing many of the city’s new icons. Make stops on the return walk.

Lunch
Roast 
Upstairs at Borough Market is this hub of modern British seasonal gastronomy. Pick up an incredible sandwich at Roast to Go to eat riverside. Bacon butty anyone?

Afternoon Activity
Riverside Architecture
One weekend a month, all of Norman Foster’s egg-shaped city hall is open to the public (some parts are open Mondays-Fridays). The helical staircase is a stunner. His amazing Millennium Bridge is nearby.
Night Cap
Tate Modern 
This summer, the modern art complex presents “Futurism,” celebrating the centenary of one Europe’s most radical art movements.
