As with all London bridges, the views over the Thames are spectacular. This bridge connects Ludgate Hill and the Embankment with Southwark and the South Bank. It’s not as exciting as Tower Bridge or the Millennium Bridge but it does the job. The eastwards views...More

This is just another average and typical bridge over the Thames river. There's nothing extraordinary about it and it can be views from the better looking neighbour - the Millennium bridge.

That is of course if we’re talking about Blackfriars station bridge which most here seem to be. It’s the only bridge in London that is also a railway station and you can exit both to the north and south sides of the Thames. Of course...More

Just one of the many bridges that crosses the Thames River. There was really nothing special about this bridge. We saw this on the river cruise that we did and nice to snap a couple of pictures.

There is a railway station on a bridge across the Thames. It has views up and down stream from the platforms which are pretty stunning. Location wise it is near to St Pauls and also the Tate modern museum.

The bridge itself is attractive enough, though far from aesthetically striking, and it's nice for crossing the Thames. However, if you're looking for great views and photo opportunities, this is not the bridge for you because the views on one side are completely obstructed by...More

Crossing the bridge at street level does jot require steps. There are steps down to the river level walkway but I believe there are also lifts at some points and a longer walk along local streets can get you to the walkway... More
