The river, on leaving Westminster-bridge, winds circuitously to the right, passing on the left part of the ancient palace of Whitehall, and a little in advance the elegant and newly erected market of Hungerford, as well as a fine row of houses, called Adelphi terrace, flows through the splendid arches of Waterloo bridge, a structure acknowledged by Canova as unrivalled in Europe. On emerging from the arches, the stately building of Somerset House, with its noble terrace, presents an imposing and beautiful object.
