I had an appointment fairly early in London on Saturday, so I decided to go check out the protesters again. One of the main protest areas for the Extinction Rebellion group, as I’ve mentioned before, was Waterloo Bridge. A friend had pointed out to me however that as Waterloo Bridge is shut, so is the Strand Underpass. This underpass is one-way, with entrance gained via Waterloo Bridge (hence the closure). The end pops out in Kingsway, outside of the barricades.
I went for a wander, and noticed that there was no-one near the entrance to the underpass; no police stopping people from entering. So, I went in!
Evidentially I wasn’t the first, since there were bits and pieces of graffiti down there (as well as some broken bottles).
A friend that does a lot of model photography has commented on how good of a backdrop this tunnel would make for a photoshoot. I can’t say how long the protests will continue running for, but it might be worth trying to get in to still if you’re interested!
