Victoria Embankment is a section of the city of London: a section of street, sidewalk and gardens on the north bank of the Thames, from Westminster Bridge to Blackfriars Bridge. What is very nice about this section of the city is that the sidewalks on both side of the street are wide and the overall length is good for a nice walk with the Thames and all its activities serving as entertainment.
Promenade in Victoria Embankment
The sidewalk next to the Thames is more like a promenade. We went to the Embankment two times and there were people walking the promenade. There was some boat activity on the Thames both times also.

Along the Victoria Embankment there are some monuments and other landmarks. There is the Battle of Britain Monument. The Royal Air Force Monument, a magnificent column with a golden eagle taking off. A dragon with a shield showing the Cross of St. George and below there is a plaque that says "City of London" (please see the London page where we have a picture). Then there is an Egyptian section; including a real obelisk, called Cleopatra's Needle, from the Pharos days. And there are many more monuments and sculptures in the garden and the buildings.
