A great walk over the Thames, this bridge gives you photo ops of so many cool things: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, etc. A great place to people watch too.

Vibrant place and a photographers mecca. No matter where you look there is a famous landmark. I love this area.

This bridge is probably not as talked about as the Tower Bridge but is just as important. From the bridge you can see the Thames river, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament other great icons of Central London. Its the best place to get a photo of Big Ben & luckily it was a bit quiet tourist wise while we where... More

Besides Tower Bridge, this is the most iconic bridge in the UK. THE BEST spot for that classic London bus & Big Ben photograph. Be prepared for a little wait for the best photo. Pedestrians just don't care that you have a camera up to your face, they will just walk in front of you and that perfect pic is... More

This iconic bridge provides a great photo opportunity. From the bridge you can see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye, Boudicca and of course the great River Thames. The North side was far more crowded probably due to the fact that Parliament is on that side. It is worth just stopping to look at the river and... More

The view from the bridge is great. You can see Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye and more. The South side of the bridge was less crowded than the North side, especially near where all the three-card monte games and street vendors were stationed. One of more well known bridges in all of London.

The Westminster Bridge is a must see while you are in London. Combine the visit with a trip on the London Eye, walk across the bridge to the Houses of Parliament, see Westminster and strike it off your to-do list.

This is a real tourist cauldron and when we visited - noon on Saturday - it was rammed with chancers, hawkers and people blocking the pavement right next to a busy main road. There were no police in evidence. I appreciate that this is a tourist trap, but that doesn't mean that you actually have to trap tourists.

The Westminster Bridge is lovely and is painted GREEN! It is the bridge of the people, or green for the seats in the House of Commons. The Lambeth Bridge is painted red, for the House of Lords. The Westminster bridge offers beautiful views of Parliament,Big Ben, London Eye, and many other sites of the wonderful city of London. The bridge... More
