Look up the history of Lake Havasu city, it's founder and how he acquired the bridge and brought it to AZ. Very interesting reading and the second most popular tourist attraction after the Grand Canyon.

The bridge looks as if it has been there for ever instead of the 40 plus years it has been there. On the Havasu Lake the channel under it was dug after the bridge was erected. With its Union Jack (as well as the Stars and Stripes) flying along the top it is a big attraction to the area. It... More

The history of the bridge was fascinating. It is a beautiful bridge and the walk across is not as bad as I thought it would be.

It's a bridge, the history is mildly interesting but it is still just a bridge surrounded by tacky, closed tourist shops. Honestly just keep driving so you'll have more time somewhere nicer.

Not much to say about it, its a bridge. Moved from London back in the 70s I think. Oil tycoon paid 2.46 million to purchase it. He then moved it to Lake Havasu City AZ. It crosses the Colorado River, rather short 300-400 Ft. Interesting to know it was moved in pieces and each piece was number so worker would... More

We only visited to Lake Havasu to see the old London Bridge and we were not sure quite how it would look. We were both very impressed with the bridge, it looks in great condition and has been reconstructed very well. The whole area was very busy, with a very active lake going crowd. The small shops we visited were... More

By itself, I would not bother to go see the bridge, but the setting is nice and, if you're in the area, worth the time to see.
