Millennium Bridge, London

4.3
#109 of 3,305 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.

  • Get drunk and shaking pretty bridge and pedestrian bridge, so impressed even the Harry Potter, was passed at a quick pace. Clean with a clean, street location best for you I think.

  • Beautiful pedestrian bridge. It's also known as the wobbly bridge by the Londoners. It was designed by the renowned architect Norman Foster. Lovely art across the bridge floor. You can walk from the St paul's cathedral side to the Tate Modern. Stunning piece of modern architecture. One of the many bridges crossing the river Thames. But this is the newest and most modern of it all. If you get a chance I would highly recommend a walk across this bridge while taking in the glory of London.
  • I remember when this bridge was commissioned back in the year 2000, along with the then 'Millennium Dome' which now goes by the name 'The O2'. These were two exciting projects, though I think most were impressed by the dome. This bridge was at one point known as the wobbly bridge, since it used to wobble when a large number of people were crossing it. However, turns out 18 years later, it works pretty well and serves it's purpose. It's impressive, but of course, nowhere near as impressive as Tower Bridge (or even the history of London Bridge).
  • Love this bridge. It has an amazing structure and stunning views. Easy way to get from St Paul's to the Tate Modern. For those not aware don't forget to look down at your feet, while you are walking across. There are stunning bubble art all over the bridge, the size of a coin. So much detail and beauty, but can be easily missed if you are not aware of it.
  • Nice pedestrian bridge with wonderful views, and even better ones at night so you can see all the colorful lights of London. And read also the story of opening/closing it for two years! Locals call the bridge the "Wobbly Bridge" because of the swaying the bridge made after the first opening in 2000. Recommended place to go in London!
  • I lived in London for three years and this is one of those places that I keep coming back to when visiting the city. The view towards St Paul's is the best you'll get of the cathedral. It's the perfect end point for your walk along the Southbank from Big Ben/ London Eye or from Tower Bridge. The nearest Underground stations are St Paul's on the Central Line and Mansion House on the Circle and District lines.
