    From the Tate Modern to St Paul's Cathedral - a good walk, an interesting bridge (no, that's not an oxymoron) - used to be colloquially called the 'Wobbly Bridge' because it would sway in the slightest wind, but is now very safe and far less wobbly.

    A nifty helical pedestrian bridge spanning the river from St. Paul's Cathedral to the Tate Modern in Southbank. It's a fabulous place for a spot of photography (great buildings and architecture around here), and makes for a scenic walk.

    I first encountered the Millenium Bridge in 2005 on an overnight stay at the YHA near St. Paul's. It's a really neat way to the see the city because there are no cars and therefore no commotion to spoil your view. It also appeared in Harry Potter, so that's something.

    A wonder of modern design, this is the only purely pedestrian bridge over the Thames - connecting the Tate Modern with St Pauls.

    Great! Favourite spot for London for couples. I've started more than one romance here and I expect others can say the same.

    Come here for some of the best views in London. The bridge is framed by the Tate Modern at one end and St Paul's Cathedral at the other.

    Great design and since it's pedestrianised, an easy place to dawdle, snap photos and take in the views.

    The Millenium Bridge is a pedestrian bridge across the Thames. The views of the city are good. I only got to walk on it after its wobble was fixed.

    A perfect example of London's mix of old and new, the Millenium Bridge is a stunning modern architectural element that links the Tate with St. Paul's Cathedral. This bridge is a must see for anyone who enjoys perspective.

    If you hear the history of the bridge and how it was once meant to be able to carry vehicles and not simply be a foot bridge, it may be a bit intimidating to actually walk across. Nonetheless, it is a sight to behold. My preference was to stand a few hundred meters away and ponder its structure when compared to the backdrop of the historical city. Very unique, indeed.

    One of London's Iconic Architecture to welcome the new Millennium had to be closed again after its first opening because it was structurally 'unstable', it swayed heavily!
    Nowadays it's a nice walkway from which you can see a nice view of the South Bank.
    Especially cool place is at the end of the South side from which you can see an awesome view of St. Paul's Cathedral

    I don't like heights so was reluctant to cross the bridge because it did not look very sturdy but I'm glad I tried it because despite the look, I was not bothered by the heights and walking either way, you get some great views of the Thames River, Tate Modern or St Pauls.

    Its an amazing work of modern design and engineering. It provides a wonderful view of a lot of sights of London along the river Thames. This is the connection on the river from St Paul's Cathedra on one side to Tate Modern Gallery on the other side.

    A great feat of engineering this bridge wobbled so badly when it was first opened that it had to be re-engineered so that people felt safe on it. On a windy day, it still feels the same!

    The Millenium Bridge represent a contemporary piece in London. It connects the City to a very modern and evolving part of London, which includes also Tate Modern. Made with steel, it is a footbridge with very nice views on the city, including Saint Paul Cathedral. It was inaugurated in 2000.

    A really cool bridge. I love that you can take the bridge to get to the Tate Modern. Another plus, the bridge can be seen in the Harry Potter films.

Description

The Millennium Bridge in London is one of the most famous and recently built architectural wonders of the world. The bridge, whose claim to fame is the sixth Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (where it replaced Brockdale Bridge, a fictitious one in the world of Harry Potter) - has a rich and interesting history. Earlier nicknamed the wobbly bridge by Londoners for its vibrations when it first opened, it now has been reinforced and offers a majestic view of the St. Paul's Cathedral and most of London's famous landmarks.
