London, United Kingdom:
Through the Tower Bridge to Scandinavia and Back

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

We arrived early this morning in London, one of the most spectacular waterborne approaches in the world.

It was a superb morning, with the extra added excitement of a hot air balloon regatta overhead near Greenwich.

Here is some of what we saw today:

The Tower Bridge spans were raised for us and we moved slowly and carefully to our dock across from the Tower of London alongside the retired light cruiser HMS Belfast, a ship that saw duty in some of the critical battles of northern Norway during World War II.

For guests leaving us here, safe travels. And to new friends, welcome aboard.

We’ll rest here for the day, backing out through the bridge early on Monday.

Silver Wind tied up to the floating dock alongside HMS Belfast in the River Thames.

The Tower of London reflected in a modern building near Millennium Pier on the River Thames. The Tower is off the starboard side of our ship as we are moored to HMS Belfast.

Our schedule calls for visits to Honfleur in Normandy, France and then through the Kiel Canal in Germany for visits to Copenhagen and Aalborg in Denmark, Gothenburg in Sweden, the capital city of Oslo in Norway, and then back one more time to London.

Here’s our plan:

I hope you’ll join me here in these pages.
