Millennium Bridge, London

4.2
#112 of 3,379 in Things to do in London
See some of the city’s major landmarks from the iconic Millennium Bridge, built to mark the millennium and quickly nicknamed the "Wobbly Bridge" after some pedestrians felt an unexpected swaying motion days after it originally opened for foot traffic. Extensively modified to remove the wobbling, the steel suspension bridge re-opened in 2002, connecting the City of London with the Tate Gallery in Bankside. The bridge’s alignment offers a clear view of St. Paul’s Cathedral’s south façade, framed by the bridge supports. Take a walk across the River Thames in the evening hours to take photos of the New Globe Theater, Tate Modern, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, with the nighttime cityscape providing a memorable backdrop.

  • After an evening meal on Bankside (south of the river) I strolled across the bridge one summer's evening. Views looking to the north were magnificent, with St Paul's Cathedral featuring prominently. T...  more »

  • An engineering marvel.. despite early wobbling. Very popular. Literally a bridge that connects St.Pauls cathedral a religious place on one end to Tate modern gallery a place of art and culture. Always thrilled to be walking on the Millennium bridge..no matter how many hundred times I have done it before. Piece of modern history
  • It's bridge across the river, what more is there to say? Makes for some good photos - especially approaching St Paul's. Crowded in the rush hour with commuters in the morning and commuters and tourists in the evening. Convenient for getting to the tate modern.
  • Visited at night. Great views of St. Paul's Cathedral and views of the Shard from Millennium Bridge. Enjoyed the night views and a must visit. I'm into Photography so its the perfect spot for night time long exposure photography. I will visit again.
  • I walked from one end to the other without falling in the Thames - It did all I would ever ask of a bridge so 5 stars - Why Google is asking for reviews on bridges is beyond me! reviews on popular staircases next no doubt.
  • The quickest way from the Globe Theatre to St Paul's Cathedral. Usually crowded. Not unexpected, considering it is a free tourist attraction. Excellent views on either side up and down the Thames River.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
