A bridge of choice!

Love the fact that it's just for pedestrians. Great view up and down the Thames when in the middle of the bridge. Great link between St Pauls and Tate Modern.

This is an interesting footbridge that links Bankside with the city of London and when opened had a swaying problem causing its closure for two years. it now provides a great view of the Thames River and a good view of St Paul south side. Not quite as spectacular as the Tower Bridge but a good walk.

Experience on fresh legs. Don't go after a weary day. Yet, an evening stroll works best for better views. Bring a camera or camera phone. You won't regret experience the people watching. Afterwards, check out the Tate Modern, my favorite of the Tates.

* for photographers with tripods - The bridge does move when people move past crossing the bridge. Very early in the morning / before sunrise there are the least amount of people crossing so there is less movement of the bridge for long exposures. Also security guards only seem to operate from 07:00 in the morning....

The Millennium Bridge was constructed as a convenient gateway to the New Tate Gallery. It's limited to pedestrians, which makes it much more fun - no traffic to dodge - and it's a great way to get from St. Pauls to the gallery. When it opened it had a tendency to sway a bit - hmmmm - really fun! However,... More

This bridge has become very well used and in crossing it, you will take in some fantastic views of the Thames with the London back drop!

Our apartment we rented was a two walk from this bridge on the ST. Paul side every morning we would walk across to the Tate Musume side and go to Starbucks to start our day. We have photos of our kids for the last 10 years walking across the bridge. it's very special to us.

We walked across the Millennium Bridge from the Tate Modern to the north bank of the Thames headed for St. Paul's. Views of, and from, the bridge are notable. Bring your camera.

Having walked over this a number of times before, me and my daughter have now found the incline lift by the St. Paul's entrance and had great fun going up and down. It is just like a modern funicular railway

The Millennium Bridge has become one of London's most recent landmarks due to its remarkable architectural design. Worth a visit if you're in the area
