This bridge has featured in many films like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, James Bond’s Spectre and in Fast and the Furious as Moscow. There used to be a bridge here which was built in 1862. It was a disaster as it could not transport horse carriages. Charles Dickens called it the ugliest bridge ever. The current bridge was completed in 1932 and it was inaugurated by George V and Queen Mary jointly. It gives you lovely view of the Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. It was designed by architects Sir Reginald Blomfield and G. Topham Forrest. It is an arched steel bridge with embellished obelisks on it. On each end you can see the London Council’s Court of Arms and graceful dolphins. This bridge is painted red to match the seats in the the House of Lords. The bridge is believed to posses some strange Masonic symbols on it.

Used the bridge multiple times during the coronation weekend staying in the Novotel hotel. It’s not as grand as the Westminster bridge but the view down the Thames and of the Parliament and Lambeth Palace are a treat. It’s also less busy than it’s neighbouring bridge.

Could view from the roof top bar if our hotel. Beautiful in the forefront of famous buildings. Plain but gives it a touch of class

I always like the variety of bridges that span the Thames. Lambeth Bridge is old and somewhat plain but it is nice.

We saw this during our hop on hop off as with many other bridges. It's for pedestrians and vehicles alike and is made up of several arches.

One of the more modern Thames crossings built in 1932, a successor to a number of previous structures. It’s predominant red colouring is said to refer to the colour of the benches in the House of Lords, while the green motif on Westminster Bridge upstream mimics the colour of the benches in the House of Commons. Whether that’s true or not, it’s a great place to get a perfect view of the Houses of Parliament, as well as Lambeth Palace on its eastern end.

Great spot where you get a good shot of Parliament and the eye all together. Got barriers to stop vans and cars driven by maniacs mounting pavement.

From The London Eye we strolled down the South Bank to Lambeth Bridge passing Lambeth Palace on the left hand side...great spot for taking photos of the Houses of Parliament..Lambeth Bridge seemed nice and quiet compared to the more city centre crossings.
