The next day I set out for more London sightseeing. I wanted to see Victoria Embankment Gardens, a favorite hangout along the river, for me and most of London. If the weather is even halfway decent, it seems that the gardens are full of people enjoying the blooms and taking in whatever sun is available. In the heart of London, along the banks of the Thames, this haven invites you to linger.
This marker tells a bit about it, and answered a question
for me about where the street from Embankment Station
tube stop, where the west entrance to the gardens is
located, got it's name. The street is Villiers, and he
was the first Duke of Buckingham.
