On our tour we learnt that this bridge was constructed during former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s term. When first opened it was wobbly and unstable and had to be fixed, but its quite safe to walk on now. It takes you across the River...More

Fun bridge across the Thames easily walkable from St Paul’s across to The Shakespeare’s theatre. Modern funky design and the bridge that twists and sways in the Harry Potter films as they fly over it. Good views from it and worth a walk over.

This bridge is of an unusual design which apparently swayed when first opened! However, it is now solid and a very popular way to cross the Thames on foot. It is also an ideal place for photography with St Pauls Cathedral at one end and...More

This pedestrian bridge makes crossing the river Thames an absolutely joy. Whatever the weather (and it was a sunny September day this time), the views, architecture and walks either end of the bridge, make for a special crossing.

Nice place to cross over from St Paul's to the Tate Modern. Look down as you walk, someone has painted the chewing gum 😁!

Somehow over-hyped, this is a lovely bridge to cross the Thames on foot. It provides a good view of the river and is good for a short stroll from bank to bank.

Originally opened in 2000 for the new millennium, the pedestrian-only bridge had instability problems during strong winds and fluttered. The bridge was closed and subsequently retrofitted and reopened and has proved to be a stable steady bridge that is definitely a wonderful way to cross...More

Initially christened “the wobbly bridge” by locals , this 325 metre suspension bridge was closed shortly after opening in June 2000 for modifications and reopened in 2002. I can attest to both its previous wobble and subsequent solidity as I worked in the area when...More

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

It only takes about 5 minutes to cross, taking in the sights as you go, but there are great attractions at either end including St. Paul's, Tate Modern, the Globe and the Golden Hind.
