The Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian suspension bridge linking the City of London at St. Paul’s Cathedral with the Tate Modern Gallery at Bankside.
Nicknamed the ‘Wobbly Bridge’ due to the swaying motion, the bridge was opened in June 2002 and then closed shortly after to reduce the motion felt by pedestrians. It was finally reopened in 2002.
It forms a stunning architectural feature providing a route across the Thames to link up many of London’s riverside attractions. The bridge alignment is such that a clear view of St. Paul’s south facade is presented from across the river, framed by the bridge supports. It’s a great place to take photos of the river, Tate Modern and St Paul’s.
Guests at any of our London vacation rentals can reach the north side of the bridge at St. Pauls tube station on the Central line.
