Thanks for this amazing shot, Steph! 
In actual fact, the Thames Flood Barrier has been closed for the very first time this winter – thanks to a combination of high tides and the bad weather. Here's the story as reported in The Daily Express.

Stephanie Stephanie, a splendidly droll ex-Elephant Keeper, was in Shakespeare in Love! She's a professionally qualified Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, City of London, and Blue Badge Guide. A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
