Somewhat surprisingly, I had never been on a boat on the River Thames at night until yesterday. I remember as a child, when London seemed to have turned its back on the river, which always seemed cold, dark, smelly and unattractive! Over the last 50 years this has all changed, especially with the opening up of the path along the south bank of the Thames, and the transformation of the old docks into modern offices and residential areas. I had not, though, appreciated just how beautiful it was at night, with the buildings all carefully lit. I hope that the pictures below do it some justice! Thanks to Dominc and Caroline for making this possible for delegates at the Education World Forum!
