Cloud burst half way across. No umbrella. Decided view was worth getting wet for. Always think it's the gateway between new (tate modern) and old (st Pauls Cathedral)

We pushed our way through crazy crowds on the bridge at about supper time on the way to the Globe. The crowds were bad enough that it wasn't all that enjoyable, but after the show we walked across again and the bridge was practically empty. Much more enjoyable. Going from south to north you have a nice view of St.... More

You have to walk over it just to say you have, the views up and down river are quite good and you can get an uninterrupted view/photo of the shard from it but other than that......

It got us to the other side. It provided a nice view of St. Paul's as we crossed. The bridge was fine, but I was perhaps more impressed by the stand of birches we encountered just prior to crossing it.

So used to taking the Tube everywhere - my son insisted we walk from the Globe to St. Pauls across the Millennium Bridge. I went across when it was new ie; when it moved with every gust of wind but today it was a really nice leisurely walk. It still moves slightly! The views are excellent better than Tower Bridge...

Went over it to get to Tate Modern , a storm was brewing at the time, making it breezy to say the least ! Perfect for photos , and young children seemed to enjoy skidding down it as it had rained

Its weird as you can feel it moving unlike most of the other bridges in London (other than the ones that open!) It is modern though but still seems to fit in well with its... More

Nice place to walk over, the bridge moves - I mean buckles side to side so I somewhat got a headache from it but it's nice and I would recommend a visit for the sake of seeing it

I loved the view that the bridge gave me of different places. You can see St. Paul's, the Globe, and Tate Modern from here.

As a Civil Engineer I often drag my wife along to see unusual structures, most leave her cold, but this cable stayed ribbon across the Thames bucked the trend. The bridge is ideally located, providing an ideal crossing point between St Paul's cathedral and Southwark. The views up and down the river are exceptional, especially at night.
