  • It is essentially a modern-looking bridge at the end of the century XX, I used it only to move from one bank to another city

  • This is a modern bridge with no outstanding features other than to take you across the river however underneath the bridge on the south bank you will find booksellers similar to the Bouquinists of Par...  more »
  • I was at LSE just off Aldwych for three years, and often took a stroll across the bridge for the views. The skyline has changed somewhat since the late 70s/early 80s, but still this bridge offers some...  more »

  • How do you review a bridge!? It's a bridge, a famous one. You can walk across it as many times as you like. Good to imagine yourself flying over the Thames if you position yourself like Kate in Titanic.
  • Iconic bridge over the River Thames Fantastic views of both east and west London. A must visit place
  • Seems odd giving a review of a bridge... It functions very well as a bridge, and if you are hoping to travel by road vehicle or by foot between Waterloo/South Bank and the Strand then I would suggest that it is not only the best, but also the only, sensible option. All this would make it a four star bridge, but the lovely views (Westminster, St Paul's, the City) mean it gets the full five stars!
  • A better view is overnight far from the crowd and the tourist. Also, if you looking for a quiet evening to relieve the stress from long day at work and just to have your own space - defo, go later in the evening around 9-10pm.
  • Great views. Security measures in place.

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.
