The Millennium Bridge, is a breathtaking structure that sits on the River Thames. It is a pedestrian bridge that happens to be quite close to many tourist sites.

There’s beautiful symbolism in how the Bridge joins the new with the old in London since it is a direct link between St. Paul’s Cathedral on one hand and Tate Modern on the other. This is really good news for the traveler.

  • Relatively new landmark for London. Only pedestrian bridge, you have a beautiful open view from the bridge. Southward you have Tate modern gallery and northward the magnificent profile of St. Paul Cathedral. Around, the Thames banks give you a great background. An iconic bridge that brings us a lightness feeling. Walk on it is really cool.

  • What a nice bridge! Let me share a little detail: look what’s under your shoes. There are some gun stickers! There are many of them all across the bridge, and you can spot them only if you look down attentively. Sometimes people spontaneously stop, so beware. Great link from Tate to St Paul’s, conveniently placed if you have a walk between the banks. This is also the bridge from Harry Potter movie, and no, it’s not destroyed, it’s still here. I’ve heard some tourists wonder about how they rebuild the bridge after it was crashed. Think of listening to the street artists, most likely you’ll find someone singing on Tate Modern side.

  • Great bridge to walk on and very picturesque with St Paul’s Cathedral in the background. My teens love walking on it and reminding me that it was in the Harry Potter movies. Tates modern museum is on the other side of the bridge and Borough market is very nearby - great place to eat lunch

  • Well conceived pedestrian bridge. Alas not so wobbly anymore!. Architect Norman Foster had some fun there when it wobbled!. Ideal link to St Paul's Cathedral , as you walk the bridge from Tate Modern, you get this great sense of expectation when you approach the cathedral. Admire the steelwork details, stand and absorb the view from the bridge into the buildings on the north and south sides.. . stunning!

  • A beautiful view across the Thames, walk past st Paul's and then you will find it. Next to the salvation army headquarters. As you walk look down too. Lots of works of art, converted from discarded chewing gum. You will be opposite Tate Modern and Shakespeare's globe is close by on the south bank. This is a foot bridge only.
