Millennium Bridge

The first new pedestrian river crossing over the Thames in central London for more than a century, the Millennium Bridge was quickly nicknamed the ‘wobbly bridge’, after users on a charity run experienced an unnerving swaying motion in the first few days after its unveiling. Quickly closed for modifications, it reopened in 2002, and since then, the vibration seems to be under control. Created by Arup, Foster and Partners and Sir Anthony Caro, the steel suspension bridge is some 325m long, and can support 5,000 people at a time. A link between The City and Bankside, it offers one of the finest vantage points in the capital, with St. Paul’s and Tate Modern greeting visitors’ eyes as they head north and south respectively.

Opening Times: Mon-Sun 10am-6pm
