  • 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.
  • 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
  • Love landmarks
