With a modern design giving a unique tubular effect, London's Millennium Bridge is a 330-meter pedestrian bridge linking the City of London at St Paul's Cathedral with the new Tate Gallery at Bankside.
On our tour we learnt that this bridge was constructed during former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s term. When first opened it was wobbly and unstable and had to be fixed, but its quite safe to walk on now. It takes you across the River...More
Fun bridge across the Thames easily walkable from St Paul’s across to The Shakespeare’s theatre. Modern funky design and the bridge that twists and sways in the Harry Potter films as they fly over it. Good views from it and worth a walk over.
This bridge is of an unusual design which apparently swayed when first opened! However, it is now solid and a very popular way to cross the Thames on foot. It is also an ideal place for photography with St Pauls Cathedral at one end and...More
This pedestrian bridge makes crossing the river Thames an absolutely joy.
Whatever the weather (and it was a sunny September day this time), the views, architecture and walks either end of the bridge, make for a special crossing.
This suspension footbridge is made of steel and hangs over the River Thames, and connects the Bankside with the City. The Millennium Bridge was completed in 2000 and was the first new bridge over the Thames in London since the Tower Bridge in 1894. The...More
This is a low-profile sleek modern bridge connecting St. Paul's Cathedral walkway with the other side of the Thames. It was the perfect connecting bridge for us on our way to the Tower of London from our hotel (Grange St. Paul's). In our opinion, the...More
Originally opened in 2000 for the new millennium, the pedestrian-only bridge had instability problems during strong winds and fluttered. The bridge was closed and subsequently retrofitted and reopened and has proved to be a stable steady bridge that is definitely a wonderful way to cross...More
Initially christened “the wobbly bridge” by locals , this 325 metre suspension bridge was closed shortly after opening in June 2000 for modifications and reopened in 2002. I can attest to both its previous wobble and subsequent solidity as I worked in the area when...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
