Well, it's a bridge. It's a modern bridge. It's no comparison to the Tower Bridge. But it's also nice. As a Harry Potter fan you know that this is the bridge, that the Death Eaters destroyed in the sixt movie. The nicest part of this bridge is that you can have a good view to the St. Paul's Cathedral.

We walked from the front of St. Paul's cathedral down the short walkway to The Millennium Bridge and over it. Great veiws of Southwark, London and Tower Bridges from here and this attraction is free. Use St. Paul's tube station and walk around St. Paul's cathedral Untill you see the straight walkway to the Millennium Bridge. Seriously, you can't miss... More

We took a stroll here on Sunday afternoon and it was rather busy with other tourists like us. The bridge built to commemorate the new millennium was initially met with some teething wobbles but you get a good view of Tower Bridge as well as St Paul's Cathedral as you head towards it.

A fantastic architectural idea that is an aerie lattice work of steel that leaves you open to all of London while crossing the river between the Tate Modern and St. Paul's Cathedral.

It is quite new compared to the rest of the bridges near around. It does give you a good view to the St Paul's cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the Shard.

I found the idea of such a bridge to be fascinating- the idea, the background and the design. I specifically traveled there in order to cross it. The view from the bridge of St. Paul's Cathedral is stunning. It's always busy with the pedestrians,including runners. It's an active place and worth crossing, especially if one is going to visit the... More

Besides reminding me of the opening scene from a Harry Potter movie, this bridge is nice to look at. It's also a pedestrian only bridge. You get a nice view of St. Paul's Cathedral and on the other end of the bridge, you can head to Shakespeare's Globe. The bridge lights up at night.

This point of interest is really disappointed, it's nothing special just like a normal bridge across the river Thames. If you go to Tower of London, Tower bridge or Sky Garden, then you can go there without harm. But if you go there just for this bridge, you will feel disappointed.
