Well designed, modern pedestrian crossing

The bridge, spanning Thames is quite impressive , being elegant and light. It is the landmark to follow to end at Tate's or the Shakespeare Globe.

After countless daytime visits, I decided to visit the Millennium Bridge at night on a Saturday. Absolutely wonder views of Tower Bridge and The Shard and north of Millennium Bridge views of St. Paul's Cathedral. I really enjoyed the night views from the Millennium Bridge and spend about 30mins taking pics on both sides of the bridge. Great night photos... More

A handy pedestrian footbridge to cross the Thames river. I have used it whilst on visits to London on a few occasions, (generally walking tours of pubs), but if you were doing the touristy thing it offers good views along the river & links various attractions such as St. Pauls Cathedral, The Globe Theatre & Tate Modern.

A pedestrian bridge linking the Tate Modern Gallery and St Paul's Cathedral, offering panoramic views of the Thames. Worth a visit if in the area.

Opening in 2000, the Millennium Bridge makes for a nice but short walk across the Thames. At one end you have St Paul's Cathedral and at the other the Tate Modern on the Southbank. The views down the Thames are also beautiful with The Shard and Tower Bridge very easy to see. It's a very popular bridge to cross and... More

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
