    Very modern in design, the Millennium Bridge connects two very important landmarks/monuments/museums, St Paul's and the Tate Modern over the Thames. Almost like bridging between the old and new.

    Fortunately over the notorious teething troubles which caused it to wobble. Now a quick way to get from St Pauls and the City to the South Bank

    In 2005 I stated in the YHA hostel near St. Paul's Basilica. It was my first time in another country alone and I was exhilarated. I went for a walk toward the river and I stumbled upon the Millennium Bridge. Having been back a few times since, it's an essential London experience for me to cross that ugly, futuristic, metallic bridge at least once.

    Affectionately known by Londoners as the Wobbly Bridge, owing to some since corrected teething problems with the structure following its initial opening in 2000. Linking the City of London (and nearby St Paul's Cathedral) with Bankside (home to the Tate Modern, the Globe Theatre and the nearby Borough Market and Bermondsey). The bridge is particularly striking at night.

    There is a nice path along the river leading up to the bridge, which has a nice context with the Tate Modern nearby.

    The Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian-only bridge crossing over the Thames River. It's a steely modern bridge and stands in contrast to the more traditional bridges in London.

    A lovely bright metal helix decorating the Thames between St. Paul's and the south bank, this is a great spot for photography, with London's cutting edge architecture on marvelous display.

    The Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian bridge over the Thames. When it first opened, the traffic on it made it wobble rather badly. The views of the Thames sights are pretty good from the middle of the bridge.

    Its just a footbridge across the Thames, but its such a graceful little bridge that gives you great views of the City and the banks of the Thames. And it doesn't wobble anymore.

    The bridge is positioned between the Tate Modern on the south side of the river and St Paul's Cathedral on the north side of the river, making it a attraction among attraction. You cant see Big Ben from this bridge but it still manages to be a great photo spot, especially at night when the river side buildings light up.

    The Millennium Bridge is a steel suspension bridge only for pedestrian traffic. It makes for a fantastic first approach to St Paul's Cathedral as it's placed directly in front of it. The bridge itself has a fascinating design. A very modern addition to the Thames.

    When I first went to London I had to go here to see the bridge from Harry Potter. I know that sounds funny, but it's totally why I came...and don't say you weren't thinking the same thing when you were here!

    The bridge got off to a wobbly start but now offers some of the best views of the city of London.

    Opened for the Millennium Jubilee of 2000, this modern bridge connects the City of London to the South Bank, running from Tate Modern right up to St Paul's.

    The Millennium Bridge is a beautiful bridge in London!! It is a wonderful place to catch the sunset or sunrise. It crosses the Thames River. The view of St. Paul church at the end of the bridge is one of my favorite views.

    La combinación de esta estructura moderna, el Tamesi y todo el patrimonio arquitectónico alrededor, lo hacen un tanto "diferente"

    I had heard about this bridge long before I ever thought I would make it over to London. I love the modern aesthetic and it ties in quite nicely with the Tate on the other side.

    Certainly add this bridge to a walking tour (it's close to the Tate Modern or St. Paul's Cathedral). Impressive views of the Thames and surrounding land marks, and I highly recommend the walk at night to admire the lights. Don't forget to bring a jacket!

Description

Millennium Bridge, constructed to honor the year 2000, is a web of white cables and steel connecting the Tate Modern to St. Paul's. Walking across the bridge towards the dome is an experience that begs a photo, while from afar the bridge looks modern and yet somehow elegant, a fitting addition to the London scene, and its first new bridge since 1894.
