Victoria Embankment & Gardens

The Victoria Embankment extends along the Thames from Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament at the south end to Blackfriar's Bridge at the north end. Originally intended as a barrier against the encroaching Thames mud, the embankment project also provided for an above ground roadway and an underground railway trunk. The Embankment Gardens were opened in 1870 on both sides of the north end of the Hungerford Foot Bridge and provide a lovely, riverside green space, complete with outdoor cafe and statuary.
