Millennium Bridge, London

4.3
#106 of 3,359 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.

  • One of the newer crossings of the Thames, the Millennium Bridge's fame is now safely secure among its older, more historic brethren. After a rocky beginning, that led to it being closed shortly after ...  more »

  • Great and popular place to visit. Good-looking construction with a cool overview. If I'm not mistaken there was filmed one of the episodes of Harry Potter
  • Good view of St Paul's cathedral. Good view of city from the middle of the bridge. Good for an evening walk. Many eateries nearby. Good walk ways with river banks.
  • What an iconic structure. It's for pedestrians only. Again fabulous views up and down The Thames. Look out on the footway for chewing gum that has been painted over by" The Chewing Gum Man " , an artist who is known the world over
  • Good location, easy to nip from north side st Paul's Cathedral straight to the Tate Modern. Good place to waste time looking at the city and the Thames.
  • I prefer Millenium bridge to London bridge. It is narrower and you can see both sides at the same time without any traffics. Sometimes some sells caramelized nuts and it smells very good.

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.
