    The glass floor is a great time if you can do it! There are a lot of steps up but worth the amazing view. This is a can’t miss London attraction

    Watched the 70 plane flyover from the bridge...it was great. Bridge is also well located to get from the Tate Modern museum to St. Paul's cathedral.

    There are actually three bridges. Hungerford Bridge which is a railway bridge. Then two pedestrian-only bridges on either side. There is nothing special about the bridges. But the views of the Thames and the buildings on both sides are wonderful.

    I appreciate the history and importance of this bridge. However, it isn't particularly beautiful in terms of architecture. The view is beautiful later in the day and recommend this for those who have never been to London before. This may not need to be said, but if you are afraid of heights, you may want to skip this.

    The bridge itself is ok, the purpose is the views to the Houses of Parliament, London Eye etc.

    Can be crushingly busy in the afternoons, its a much more pleasant visit in the morning or evening.

    Beautiful bridge and wooden in parts. Painted in pastel green and white. A fine slender bridge and not in the least bit chunky.

    Historic bridge dating back to the opening of the current bridge in 1869 for the existing bridge which replaced one build 100 years earlier. We walked across on the footpath. Nice river and riverbank views,

    This is one of the many bridges across the river Thames ... I believe seeing bridges while on a boat gives you a totally different perspective...very nice view of the London eye from the bridge...

    Stayed nearby and is another old London Bridge with history. Distinctive red sides make it a focal point for the area. Can get busy and another great south/north of the river connection

    Could view from the roof top bar if our hotel. Beautiful in the forefront of famous buildings. Plain but gives it a touch of class

    The area is impressive to visit, to see how the canal now sits alongside the modern structures and adds to the ongoing changes in london and it’s suburbs. While there we enjoyed seeking out both the bridges ( the fan bridge is a minute away ) after watching them in action on you tube.

    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.

    I really like this bridge, which is open for pedestrians and cyclists only - a beautiful, quiet place which lets you cross the river and enjoy the views. The bridge itself is beautiful - hopefully it will be repaired but kept closed for cars.

    Loved taking photos here despite the wind, rain and the cold. Nice location and a great opportunity for some photos. Can also be nice for a romantic walk.

    Shame that some of the lights are not working and kind of ruin the view a little.
