London County Hall is a grand building along the Thames River that was once home to the London Council.  Like any good city revitalisation, the county hall is now an entertainment centre and home to two hotels.   It is now the home of the London Sea Life Aquarium, London Dungeon, a Marriott Hotel and Premiere Inn.  If you don’t know the building as the London County Hall building, you certainly know the London Eye sits right next to it.

The building is on the South Bank of the River Thames and reflects beautifully in the water when it is illuminated at night.  It faces west toward the City of Westminster and is close to the Palace of Westminster.  Stand in front of the building and you’ll have nice photographic views of Big Ben and the House of Parliament building.  Westminster Bridge is directly next to the county hall building, heading south.  The area is easily reached via Waterloo or Westminster London Underground stations.

Grab your camera and be ready for a photographic feast in this area.  If you like architectural features, be close to the building.  For a wider view, be sure to cross over Westminster Bridge to Victoria Embankment to capture images across the Thames River.  You will want to stop along the way as the views from Westminster Bridge are incredible.  You’ll have super photo opportunities of Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster, London County Hall, the London Eye as well as the fabulous Golden Jubilee Bridges.

All along Victoria Embankment you’ll find a low and wide sturdy wall with a ledge.  So, if you’re without your tripod for night photography, you’ll have no problem whatsoever.  You’ll find a fantastic view of London County Hall and the city’s newest icon, The London Eye.  Visit at night to be treated to colorful reflections from the illuminated buildings across the water.  And don’t forget, the lights from the Golden Jubilee Bridges and Westminster Bridge are nice as well.  What’s more, is you can also capture light trails from boats as they pass down river.
