    Walked on this bridge and played around it when I was a kid. Only one car could get through at a time. Now they are refurbishing it and trying to conserve most.  more »

    It's one of the major landmarks in London... if you can call it major. Not that it attracts tremendous tourists, it showcases quite a bit of history, and it's a nice place to take a picture at. While it's not in a special location, I happened to stumble upon it, and I found it beautiful. Go give it a visit - you don't have to pay anything, anyways.

    Amazing historic bring on one of Londons longest foot trails... It's usage when built, would have been to allow much smaller cars along with horses with buggies and foot traffic to transverse this bridge. In both size and weight these vehicles and the such werenot as heavy as what is out on the roads these days. So it was therefore was decided in the past to not allow car traffic across this London landmark. The bridge does allow for foot traffic though. It is a great piece of work considering when it was built and how it still stands tall.

    Our company was invited by the City of London to bid for the repair & preservation of this historical bridge.

    Beautiful spot - nice connection to either side of the Thames parkway, nice walking bridge.

    This bridge is pretty cool. I wish I could drive across it again but in the meantime is still a nice shortcut to downtown while on foot or bike

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
