Beautiful bridge, especially at night with the light display.
3/2021
Standing on London Bridge and looking west towards Southwark Bridge as dusk sets in and the lights of the bridge start their light show is an amazing experience as you see the lights softly reflected on the Thames and as the night sets in the colours of the lights get more prominent but not in an intrusive way. The bridge is gorgeous at day time as the sun shines on it but it gets into night mode with the lights on as well. This is one of the bridges I almost never cross but tend to look at more. Luckily, the view is great, as the actual London bridge is not particularly great to look at.

Foot and road bridge

This arched bridge was started being built before World War One but not completed until 1921. It has the least amount of traffic on it then any other bridge, we saw this from a cruise down the Thames.

Amazing place to sit and look at sights.
10/2019
This is a relatively quiet bridge to cross as the nearby Tower Bridge and Millennium Bridge tend to attract more visitors. There are seats located on both sides that allow you to have a grand view of the Thames River and rest your feet. One side leads into St Paul's Cathedral area and the other a short walk to Borough Market.

A 'forgotten fairy tale bridge' that disappears in surrounding buildings
7/2019
This bridge is probably paid more attention to its practical location than its own appearance. Located midway between Millenium Bridge and London Bridge, it becomes a natural place to cross the Thames if you, for example. has the Tate Gallery as a walking destination. The bridge itself is quite slender and has a little 'Disneyland feel' to it - a 'forgotten fairy tale bridge'. It is now drowning in the surrounding buildings, which over time become taller and more dominant.

Southwark Bridge
6/2019 • Soolomatka
One of the many bridges over the River Thames in Central London. Southwark Bridge is an arched bridge that spans the river with the City of London on the north bank and Southwark on the south bank. It's located just east of the Millennium Bridge and west of London Bridge, and not as busy as the other bridges although you can still use it to get to the tourist attractions such as Tate and other museums in the area. On a good clear day, you can still get nice views of the River Thames and some of the major landmarks of London as afar.

Another Bridge
5/2019 • Pariskunnat
This is one of many bridges across the Thames. We walked across as we stayed in Bankside. The bridge itself much, just another bridge to walk across, however we got some great views of the city from this bridge to, with the Shard standing out on one side of the river and the walkie talkie building on the other side.

walk along the Thames
3/2019 • Kaverit
one of the bridges on the route of your mandatory walk to the Tate Modern along the Thames, Blackfriar Bridge, Millenium Bridge and further Tower Birdge. The Soutwartk Bridge may not be the most architecturally interesting but you'll take amazing pictures of the Saint Paul Cathedral.

One of the bridges overspanning the River Thames. Often mistaken for London Bridge, which is often mistaken for tower bridge.

Fastest way from South Bank to Bank in City of London
3/2019 • Soolomatka
Blackfriars Bridge and nearby Southwark Bridge get a bad rap. They are not as flashy or popular as their neighbors, Tower Bridge and the pedestrian Millennium Bridge but that's part of the charm: they aren't as crowded and as well as being historic they will get to the south bank or to the City of London faster by foot with less jostling. Southwark will get you from the Borough Market area on the South Bank to the financial district (Bank) of the City of London. I was headed to the Bloomberg Mithraenum and this was the quickest route: the site is steps from the bridge's landing on the City side. Also the colors of the bridge are subtle, sensitive, and artistic for a municipal bridge.

Another dull bridge - but with great views of St Pauls
1/2019 • Soolomatka
Another of London's many bridges across the Thames - certainly not the most impressive, but it does have great views of St Paul's Cathedral.
