As its name indicates, this bridge was built in inauguration of the third millennium of this hallowed city. The steel structure was designed by architects Foster & Partners and it is London's first new bridge since the 1960s. The Millennium Bridge is a 370-meter (1214 feet) long pedestrian walkway with easy access for the disabled - a scenic stroll along the teak decks between St. Paul's and the Tate Modern. Formed by a single sweeping arc, it is designed to appear as a thin ribbon of steel by day and, illuminated at night, as a shining blade of light across the river.
The Millenium Bridge is an instantly recognizable bridge across the Thames. Its architectural style is very impressive and it's a nice walk as well, particularly in the evenings. Enjoy a great river view of London.
Great little pedestrian bridge with a suspension design that goes outward horizontally instead of vertically. What this means for walkers (and central London is GREAT for walkers) is an unobstructed view all directions, whether upriver toward Parliament or downriver toward Big Ben, or north toward St. Paul's or south to the Tate Modern. Best of all, it is free. We watched fireworks at midnight on New Years Eve.
