The North Bank of the River Thames in central London is home to many of the capital’s most significant buildings, many of which are instantly recognisable.

London’s North Bank in 50 Buildings concentrates on the many fabulous buildings along the north bank of the Thames between Vauxhall Bridge and Tower Bridge. The sites include, amongst others, Tate Britain, the Houses of Parliament, Charing Cross station, the Savoy Hotel, Savoy Chapel, Inns of Courts, Somerset House, Blackfriars (pub and station), the Monument, Billingsgate and last (but not least) the Tower of London. Alongside the most prominent buildings, the authors also include overlooked and hidden treasures, for example Two Temple Place, the Institute of Electrical Engineers, the former Port of London Authority Building and Trinity House, benefiting from original research by Rachel Kolsky through her work as a London Blue Badge guide, accompanied by Louis Berk’s professional-standard photography.

London’s North Bank in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating stretch of London along the North Bank of the River Thames through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, showing the changes that have taken place in this part of London over the years. The book will appeal to all those who live in London, visitors or who have an interest in the city.
