I love the old and new architecture in London. The glass building looks just like a mobile phone! 20 Fenchurch Street is a commercial skyscraper in London that takes its name from its address on Fenchurch Street, in the historic City of London financial district. It has been nicknamed 'The Walkie-Talkie' because of its distinctive shape.

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London. Because of this, Tower Bridge is sometimes confused with London Bridge, situated some half a mile upstream.

The pedestrian-only Millennium Bridge opened to the public in 2000, linking St Paul's Cathedral on the north bank of the Thames with Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe in Southwark. The footbridge’s famous tremor has now been fixed, but the “wobbly bridge” nickname endures.
