Millennium Bridge, London
(4.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Our London trip itinerary planner makes visiting Millennium Bridge and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Causeway between St. Paul's cathedral and the Tate Modern. Very convenient to reach the other side in a simple way. Great views from both sides and over the River Thames.

  • It's covered in tourists, idiots with Boris Bikes, and reeks of candied nuts, but you'll love every second of it! The views are some of the best to be had in London. The nuts are actually quite tasty. And the Tate Modern is welcoming near. Not to mention you'll end up in thousands of travel photos, which will keep you in the hearts and on the mantels of total strangers for untold generations.
  • Stunning location to walk at night or day. Make sure to take your camera because the view is outstanding from the centre of the bridge. Take the train to Waterloo and then cross over to bank station.
  • Pedestrian foot bridge above the Thames - nicknamed "the wobbly bridge" when it first opened as it was...wobbly! Closed again soon after and now totally non-wobbly. Lovely views of the Thames as you cross, no traffic noise or fumes nearby (except from the river!) and links the Tate Modern Art Museum (South Bank) and St. Paul's Cathedral (North Bank) - two must see attractions for residents and tourists alike.
  • Great views and a lovely cool breeze on a warm day. On the southern end of the bridge there are loads of great photo opportunities.
  • Great place to enjoy the river view. Sometimes there are artists playing on musical instruments or people selling hot peanuts!
