Victoria Embankment is a grand location to take all the family for a Sunday afternoon promenade, and then reward with a well-deserved ice-cream. Either take a boat trip or use the river viewing platform to watch the boats, while soaking in the historic Trent Bridge. It's also a super place to feed the ducks and geese or just sit and relax at one of the many local pubs en-route.

The banks of the River Trent here are teeming with ducks and geese, so there are lots of opportunities to take some feed and get close to these wonderful water birds (as long as you remember not to feed them bread - see our healthy ducks page for details)


There's lots of parking roadside on Victoria Embankment
