Millennium Bridge, London
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
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.

A few minutes from St Paul cathedral the bridge allows some stunning views as you cross. Ideal to get to the tate museum. There were hundreds of tourists when I went but there seems to be a unspoken etiquette of who walks which way and it was a very pleasant walk. I would say it looks a lot better at night, by day it's not much to look at from a personal level.
Cool bridge that gives access to the tate modern. I would recommend picking up some caramel almonds from the sellers either side. They are great. The bridge can get very crowded though.
Covered in tourists but they're right to go. Beautiful views East and West of Thames. St Paul's in the North and it's modern mirror image Tate Modern in the South. Fantastic photo opportunities. Only wish they'd made it a little wider ;-)
Iconic and pretty much the link to the Old and the new. In reference to tate modern and st paul. I am so glad that people did not adopt to putting locks on this bridge like the one in Paris. The view is best enjoyed when not very busy.
