  • Nice view on both sides. From the eastern bridge you can see the City, the Shard and in good weather condition up to Canary Wharf. From the western bridge you can photograph the London Eye and the Big Ben.
  • Provides two of the iconic views of London, from beneath a fan of light (at night). Can be cold and windy, as expected. And some of the buskers need music lessons, though many do not. In particular, if you need to go to the South Bank, to visit the National Theatre, the Hayward Gallery, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Purcell Room, the Royal Festival Hall, the London Eye, London County Hall, etc., do not take the Tube to Waterloo station but instead use Embankment, and cross the River Thames by this bridge. If you don't mind the walk, the views of London are worth the extra time.
  • Very handy way to get from Embankment to South Bank. Useful to get tube to Embankment rather than Waterloo if more convenient. Great views up and down the river, even better at dusk and at night. The lights of the city are great from here.
  • The best way to experience London Is to plan with google map, save and label places of interest. one easy way to do that is to press on the spot on the map and drop a red pin, then clear the search area and type 'attractions' or 'scenic' which gives you a number of interesting places to visit. Then move to another area by swiping on the screen. and, click search this area which sometimes appear under the search box
  • Although these bridges vibrate due to the passing trains, they're not the 'Wobbly Bridge' which is officially called Millennium Bridge between St Paul's and Shakespeare's Globe. I've taken some beautiful photos from the pedestrian-only Golden Jubilee Bridges with an unobstructed view of the Houses of Parliament. The only drawback is that there are usually a couple of beggars on the bridges, but these are balanced out by the buskers - in particular the steel pan player, who is really rather good. There is step-free access at both ends of the bridges, although one exit is in Charing Cross Station.
