Whilst sitting eating supper in Greater Snoring, Ronan Keating was on the box introducing the 100 best summer vids. Katrina and the Waves were the #1 choon and I was gobsmacked to see Butler's Wharf or it could have been Metropolitan Wharf. I haven't seen the vid before (I slept through the 80s) and I wonder if anyone can be more specific about the locations?

Must fly, its Pimms o'clock. Byeee.

Hi Niall

The video is here.

Looks like Butler's Wharf and Shad Thames to me - you have to be handy with the pause button at the start to see the detail. In the pics of Tower Bridge, you can still see the old mooring points for the boats where Ken's Palace now stands!
