On Blackfriars bridge
The magical aspect of the sprucing up a few years ago of Blackfriars station - the overground one, not the underground - is that the platforms are now over the Thames. Yes, they are on the bridge - and you can exit on north bank or south. I always get a thrill when travelling by overground across the river, but never more so than at Blackfriars.
Modern London took a long time to wake up to the majesty of its river - to clean it up, to develop riverside walkways and to design decent river-facing architecture. But it's got there. And I firmly believe that any city without either sea or top-rank river (sorry Delhi!) just doesn't make the top grade.
