While actually looking for the MOMI...the Museum of the Moving Image, I got a chance to stroll around south of the Thames on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

There are a lot of professionals that work and live in this area, hence there are quite a few great pubs and restaurants in the area.

A great place to walk or run right in the middle of the city.

Great views of the southbank, and if you make it all the way around, great views of the city.
