    Great for a visit, make a night of it. Don’t go in an EV
    Beautiful place to visit, great to see a piece of history, plenty to see and do around the area too. Only downside, not one fast charger for EV’s anywhere in the city, very odd considering it’s A) a tourist destination and B) it’s proximity to California. We came all the way from Phoenix in an EV and was almost stranded in Lake Havasu City.

    Unexpected delight
    We picked this for a stopping area on the way to Albuquerque for the Annular Eclipse because of the lake. We were a bit disappointed that there were not boats to rent, at least that we could find. On the other hand, there was a real version of London Bridge, picked up and moved piece by piece to this location. The Holiday Inn Express we stayed at was an optimal location to visit the Bridge. At night they light it up with purple lights: very pretty.

    historical art piece
    An iconic symbol of history and architectural brilliance, stands proudly over the River Thames, weaving tales of centuries gone by. Having recently visited this timeless marvel, I am compelled to share the awe-inspiring experience that awaits those who venture to explore its grandeur. From the moment you set eyes on London Bridge, its commanding presence leaves an indelible impression. The current structure, completed in 1973, is a modern incarnation that pays homage to its predecessors while seamlessly blending with the contemporary skyline. The clean lines and elegant simplicity of the design showcase the bridge's commitment to both form and function. Crossing the bridge offers a panoramic view of the Thames River and the city beyond, providing a picturesque vantage point for capturing the essence of London. The juxtaposition of historic landmarks and modern architecture creates a visual tapestry that reflects the city's rich and diverse history. Beneath the surface, the bridge conceals a treasure trove of stories. Visitors can delve into the history of its predecessors, each with its own unique narrative. The medieval bridge, immortalized in the famous nursery rhyme, and its successor, the Victorian-era bridge, have all played integral roles in shaping London's identity.

    Tastefully Done
    It's iconic, it's London Bridge. A great job has been done in integrating a piece of England into the desert 5000 miles away, init is almost seamless. Not too sure about the English Village built around it. It smacks of an area someone thought represented England but never actually visited. It was 100 degrees the day we visited though so very un-English weather. This attraction is definitely worth a visit, but it is slightly odd that an area of bars and restaurants chooses to close at 9.30pm when the night is still young. Now that is not typical England!

    London Bridge Isn't Falling Down
    This stop was not on our itinerary but after seeing the road sign for it we decided to stop and check it out. I remember back in 1971 when the Bridge was finally opened for tourists. It took a couple of years for it to be dismantled, packed and shipped over through the Panama Canal and reassembled in Lake Havasu City. It's now a lovely little park that is free to enjoy. Lots of little snack and souvenir shops and a cooling place to sit along beautiful blue Lake Havasu. There is even a little British souvenir shop and tourist information. A nice place to take a break along the road.

We really enjoy the small town feel and friendliness of the area. It’s usually a nice and relaxing time for us. We really enjoyed staying at the Nautical while we were there, this time.

Since moving to Arizona a few years back, one of my bucket-list items had always included visiting the infamous London Bridge in Lake Havasu City which crosses the renowned and majestic Colorado River. Knowing that Power-Tool Magnate Robert McCulloch had taken the painstakingly difficult and super expensive proposition of moving the London Bridge stone-by-stone, lock, stock, and barrel from England in the sixties, I had always wanted to see, touch, and experience this historical landmark, that had its beginning sometime around 1176 AD to cross the river Thames. With almost 850 of history, one wonders how many have walked, fished, fought, died and/or made out on this bridge. It’s a wondrous feeling standing on and admiring the presence of this structure, its history, and its presence in the New World. I was truly amazed and awed. Just one thing though! I was dismayed at how cheeky the little village at the foot of this monument where the City’s Visitor Center resides. Not something that reflects the significance of such structure, its heritage or beauty. But I guess it goes hand-in-hand with the partying Baby-Boomer partygoers and former Hippy ensemble who congregate there during the summer. Your landmark is magnificent, I enjoyed it, and mystified by it, but Lake Havasu City, I think you could have done a better job at honoring this world heritage.

We came from FL to see London Bridge and what a huge disappointment. We were totally underwhelmed!!!! Even if we were just passing through, it isn’t worth the stop nor the time.

This is a historical bridge as there has always been a bridge here since 43 AD.
It is not as flashy as the Tower Bridge but is part of a famous nursery rhyme. It has seen many hardships during its lifetime like a Viking attack, Fire of London and 13th century ice damage. No wonder it was falling down again and again and needed so much repair and replacement. There used to be several houses, shops and even a church on the older version. Plus there were charges on carriages crossing it during the 13th century. There have been many bridges built here over the years. The current one was inaugurated in 1973. It was designed by Lord Holford and inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II. It is a box girder bridge. Interestingly its predecessor bridge was sold to an American who got it totally dismantled, each granite piece counted and marked and then shipped and trucked to Arizona where it was reinforced by steel and reassembled in Lake Havasu City. The current bridge has historical lamp posts which were built out of melted down cannons captured from Napoleon’s army during the Battle of Waterloo.

Enjoy walking under bridge on cool nights. Wish more lighting however past the Casino pier to rentals. Fell twice walking dog in stroller it's so dark. Antique lights would help.
