It is fun to walk across, and there is a great view up and down the Thames. A must see and do in London.

We went from Heathrow, to the hotel, to Bank Station and the begun a long walk along down to the Thames, over the Millennium Bridge and past the eye, and back over past the Palace of Westminster. The walk over the Millennium Bridge was the first moment that being in London felt REAL. The view back towards St. Paul's is... More

Walked from the Thistle City Barbican hotel to St. Paul's, across the Millennium bridge and around the Globe theater & Tate Modern Museum. Nice view of the tower bridge and London.

Great way to see London from river viewpoint. It's one of the few free things you can do that will be memorable.

We British seem to have an obsession with functionality and this often comes at the cost of style and flair. The bridge, though unique in many ways, is nothing more than a functional facility for getting you across the Thames. Given its setting I would have preferred something with a stronger statement and more pronounced style. To me this structure... More

It ain't swaying anymore if you are concerned! Besides the views across the river and looking back at St Paul's cathedral, there is nothing much on offer here.

When heading south you'll see in front of you the Tate Modern building. Mind you that the building is the most remarkable things about it (check my review), but it provides a nice backdrop for your walk. When going north you have the splendid dome of St. Pauls peaking through the buildings and you can see the Ctiy skyline above... More

The weather was perfect the day we visited London. It was nicknamed wobbly bridge because of its unstableness when it was first opened, though it is a misnomer. We walked across the Thames to Globe Theatre and Tate Modern. It was a refreshing walk and views from both end of the bridge and middle of the bridge is fascinating .... More

I crossed over and back on the Millennium Bridge and enjoyed the short walk across the Thames. It gives you a nice view on both sides. While I might otherwise have rated this as Average (as it is not really a destination or primary attraction in my mind) I selected Very Good as it is an interesting design. My daughter,... More

When first opened, the unstable nature of this bridge earned it the nickname the 'wobbly bridge'. Although the wobble was immediately rectified, the bridge is a must for any visitors to London. The views up and down the Thames from the middle are some of the best in London. The Bridge is also the gateway to St Paul's cathedral on... More
