County Hall Entrance

Entrance to the Marriot Hotel County Hall in London

Entrance to the Marriot Hotel County Hall in London

There’s something about rivers that makes walking down them special. When in London I was walking down the Thames on the South Bank waiting for the sun to set and I saw this entrance which I found quite impressive.

The building is a very nice piece of architecture from the 1900s that used to be the seat of some part of the government. It seems that due to some disagreements with the government in power on the other side of the river this London Country Hall was closed and the building sold off to a private company. Now it’s been turned into a five star hotel, museums, Sea-Life aquarium, London Eye and a McDonald’s.

Well they’ve done a nice restoration job for the hotel entrance and with the sunset having started there was a nice blue light on the exterior parts. Maybe next time I’ll treat myself to a €200 per night in this hotel and enjoy the entrance every day.
