Lovely bridge centrally located, ideal point to cross the Thames and WALK the south bank which offers great views back across the water.

This bridge is a really useful cut across the Thames between St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern. You cannot really see the architecture of the bridge from the bridge itself so you are better off looking at it from the South side of the river. The views east and west are great.

Busy bridge connecting St. Pauls and the Tate Modern. Get some great views of the city both up and down river. Only disadvantage is so many people. Modern design from 2000 but wobbled from the foot traffic so it had to be closed on opening day for rectification work. Another two years went by before re-opening in 2002.

We were in London for an art culture visit. We had walked from the Tate Modern along the river to the Millennium Bridge across to St Paul's Cathedral. The views are fabulous and the characters you meet along the way intriguing, not least the artist Chewing Gum Man. He can be found on the bridge producing artwork from disguarded gum... More

Nice walk over the Millennium Bridge. From the Millennium Bridge you have a good view of Tower Bridge.

Not really really exciting or better than the Tower Bridge, but still great views over the river to all sides!

This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
