    Amazing view of the River Thames from Platform 1. The Shard and the Tate Modern are to the right. And Tower Bridge in the distance.

    Great view of Thames from the platforms, which also makes the station quite relaxing. However, when it's cold the Thames makes the station colder. Prepare to freeze.

    Exiting southbound, look for the yellow brick building on the left, just after the big red brick chimney. Repairs to the bricks on the gable end facing you look like a fiendish optical illusion!
