Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Attended an event inside the bridge. First time inside and it was great. The lift takes you to the 4th floor where you have a bird's eye view of London and the Thames. A glass viewing panel affords another viewing option albeit scary to walk on. Made me want to take the Tower Bridge tour.

    This is one of the newest bridges [the newest?) in central London and its only open to pedestrians which is very good indeed.

    There are actually three bridges. Hungerford Bridge which is a railway bridge. Then two pedestrian-only bridges on either side. There is nothing special about the bridges. But the views of the Thames and the buildings on both sides are wonderful.

    The bridge itself is ok, the purpose is the views to the Houses of Parliament, London Eye etc.

    Can be crushingly busy in the afternoons, its a much more pleasant visit in the morning or evening.

    Beautiful bridge and wooden in parts. Painted in pastel green and white. A fine slender bridge and not in the least bit chunky.

    The current road and foot traffic bridge over the River Thames was completed in 1869. This bridge between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Railway Bridge is 281 meters long and 32 meters wide.

    On our visit, there were repairs ongoing. We were walking the Queen's Walk and walked under the bridges.

    This is one of the many bridges across the river Thames ... I believe seeing bridges while on a boat gives you a totally different perspective...very nice view of the London eye from the bridge...

    Stayed nearby and is another old London Bridge with history. Distinctive red sides make it a focal point for the area. Can get busy and another great south/north of the river connection

    Could view from the roof top bar if our hotel. Beautiful in the forefront of famous buildings. Plain but gives it a touch of class

    The area is impressive to visit, to see how the canal now sits alongside the modern structures and adds to the ongoing changes in london and it’s suburbs. While there we enjoyed seeking out both the bridges ( the fan bridge is a minute away ) after watching them in action on you tube.

    This arch bridge for traffic links the district of Southwark and the City across the River Thames. The 244-meter-long bridge was completed in 1921. The riveted bridge is enhanced by a beautiful multi-color paint scheme.

    I really like this bridge, which is open for pedestrians and cyclists only - a beautiful, quiet place which lets you cross the river and enjoy the views. The bridge itself is beautiful - hopefully it will be repaired but kept closed for cars.

    Loved taking photos here despite the wind, rain and the cold. Nice location and a great opportunity for some photos. Can also be nice for a romantic walk.

    Shame that some of the lights are not working and kind of ruin the view a little.
