THE TERRACE AND THE RIVER THAMES: The exceptionally large private Terrace is a real bonus and a fabulous outdoor space to enjoy. The views are wonderful and there are always a variety of boats passing by on the Thames for you to see. At high tide luxury Cruise Liners,Tugs, the famous Thames Barges & sometimes Navy Ships and the old fashioned, tall clipper sail ships can be seen sailing past to dock alongside HMS Belfast. This part of the Thames was once known as the 'Pool of London' because of its deep water channels which enables such large vessels to go upstream. The views are even more impressive at night, especially at New Year. There are numerous firework displays to see across the London skyline not least of all the fantastic firework display at the London Eye which 'as the crow flies' can been seen clearly from the Terrace. If the weather is good the Terrace is bathed in sunshine all day long. It's the perfect place to unwind and relax - whether it's day or night - all you have to do is prepare the cocktails!
