5 views from a bench you need to see

A bench is often not just a place to sit and watch the world go by, it’s a place to rest on a busy day, a place to meet friends or lovers, to read a book or to stop for a bite to eat. Seating, wherever it may be gives people a reason to pause and rest within the hustle and bustle of their environment. Research has also found that the provision of public benches allows for people to spend longer outside, which is great for mental health, reduces isolation and combats loneliness within communities.

As a bench is such a significant place for most, we figured the view from the bench is equally as important. We took a look at some of the most spectacular views taken from various bench locations up and down the country, the perfect spot for sitting and watching the world go by.

Tower Bridge, London

An iconic structure, largely a world-famous landmark for London. The view from the benches at the popular southbank in London Bridge over the River Thames, it is the longest river entirely in England so why not take a boat to get the best of the scenery of the South Bank and beyond.

Greenwich, London

Situated next to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, these benches give an unrivalled view with the Queen's House in the foreground, then across the Thames with views over Docklands and Canary Wharf.
