This will be a great exhibition to visit in London and will include my winning portfolio...

London gains a fantastic new photography exhibit this Easter as the latest winning images from Travel Photographer of the Year make their public debut at a stunning, free-to-view outdoor exhibition at London Bridge City, across the Thames from the Tower of London. A move up river from our previous exhibition ‘home’ in Greenwich, this new celebration of photography runs from Good Friday, March 30 to Sunday, April 29. Some 140 images will go on display. Enjoyed by visitors from across the globe and with a vibe loved by those who work and live in the area, London Bridge City is surrounded by some of the City’s most famous landmarks and is steeped in rich British culture. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of City Hall, the Scoop, Borough Market, the Shard, HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge, this vibrant and forward-thinking community is one of the most visited riverside London destinations. As we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the awards, we are very excited to be moving our annual London exhibition of the latest winning images to London Bridge City.
