Brilliant clip - but as Anthony hints, drop under the Thames - via the Overground and your Oyster Card - from Wapping station to Rotherhithe - there's the Mayflower, the Angel (directly opposite Execution Dock), Brunel Museum, St Mary's Church, the Watch café, Sands Film Studio, and the Old Mortuary (Time and Talents) ....

Amazing video!
