A lovely bridge It starts on one side and effortlessly continues all the way to the other It's made of metal and other hard stuff and has water flowing beneath it. It's colourful and considerably older than you and I (Probably better looking) It's iconic, it's in London. Oh and has hosted our best Spy ever. Just be aware, you're... More

Vauxhall bridge is the best place to take pictures of MI6 that's famous for 007, I think. Of course, its silent presence itself is good. It's located near Vauxhall station, so you can easily get there by foot from the station. Why don't you go to the other side, taking scenic walk?

The Grade II-listed bridge links the areas of Pimlico and Vauxhall, although the structurally the bridge is dull, there are good decent views of the city; on a clear day, one can just about see the London Eye. The area around Millbank and Tate Britain is nice and if you plan to use the Tate Boat, the views are much... More

I often walk along the bridge as part of my lunchtime walk and it's one of the nicest bridges to cross. It's been a Grade II listed structure since 2008 and spans the Thames between Vauxhall on the south bank to Pimlico on the north bank. Built in 1906 there are some nice architectural touches, such as the statues on... More

I sometimes walk or take the bus over this attractive London Bridge when travelling between The Oval Cricket Ground and Victoria Station and/or Tate Britain. The beauty of this river crossing isn't evident from its surface, though. The best way to appreciate it and the wonderful sculptures on its sides (which I have described in a previous review) are to... More

A truly amazing sight - four horses in the Thames by Vauxhall Bridge (in front of the MI6 building). Visible at low tide, when you can walk up to them on 'Vauxhall beach' and then submerged at high tide. The sculptures are by Jason deCaires Taylor, the horses’ heads replaced by oil-well pumps. Two of the riders are men and... More

A pretty plain bridge that seems to offer little interest, until you realise the big MI building on the south side is the famous building from the James Bond films

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
