Daily Prompt: The Golden Jubilee Bridge, London

P1420328_2

Almost astral,

The lights along the bridge,

Leading  our path

Across the Thames

South to North along

The Golden Jubilee Bridge

Turned royal purple

In the night

For our queen.

There are two  Golden Jubilee Bridges each flanking the Hungerford Railway Bridge which carries trains from Charring Cross on the north side of the Thames to Waterloo Station and the London Eye on the south. The bridges are only 4 metres wide and are pedestrian bridges constructed in 2002 and named in honour of  Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee. At night they are lit usually by a purple light.

    1. Yes that area of The Thames and the walkways is thrilling to be in on a cool winter night, especially at Christmas when the lights along the South Bank are spectacular. There is lots of entertainment in that area too.
