London’s Many Bridges: Westminster Bridge

Westminster Bridge

Now that we have discussed the London Bridge – let’s go ahead and dive right into – yes, you got it, the Westminster Bridge!  This particular bridge is actually one of my favorite.  Not only does it look incredible, but it is definitely one bridge that I don’t think that you would want to miss if you are touring around London. 

This bridge was first opened in 1750 and it was actually established as one of the most important links across the Thames.  It joined the ever-expanding area around Westminster to what now is Waterloo.  It actually remains still, to this day one of London’s busiest foot and road bridges.

It is very convenient, as it links between the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, which is very important.
