London, England:
Journey’s End, Through the Tower Bridge

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

We’ve completed our roundtrip from cosmopolitan London up the west coast of Norway to the cold top at the northernmost point of mainland Europe and back.

Early this morning, Silver Wind entered the estuary of the River Thames about 1:30 a.m.

Sunrise came at 5:47 a.m., in time for us to have a glorious approach to London, gleaming in the early sun.

Just as the morning rush hour got fully under way, the spans of the London Tower Bridge opened to let us through to come through to our mooring.

Here are some photos I took two weeks ago when Silver Wind went through the Tower Bridge at the end of our previous cruise.

Arrivederci to our guests heading home; some will take a taxi from the ship to Greater London, and others have longer journeys. Safe travels.

We, too, are going home for a while. We’ll be back aboard ship in the fall; I hope you’ll join me here in these pages.
