Being from England I should really of known about this bridge, but I didn't. I was intrigued on arrival in Lake Havasu on seeing a name of a road called London Bridge Road and after spending a day on the lake and taking a few pictures of it I decided to look up the history of it. That's when I... More

They built a bridge in the middle of the dessert? Yup and then they dug a channel under it. The whole history of the bridge and Lake Havasu City in general is fascinating to me. So much so that it lured me to give up my New England home and "Head West Young Man". The old English Village around the... More

We were there during Labor Day weekend. Had a great time. But didn't really expect such a party atmosphere. We probably would not visit during a holiday weekend or something like spring break - parties/clubs go on until 2 in the morning, Didn't expect the loud music till 2 in the morning. Overall, we had a nice stay. Special mention... More

It's a bridge, one that was moved from London back in the 60's to go over a desert which was later made into a lake. The bridge itself is...hmmm.. a stone bridge Now there is shopping next to the bridge and everything that goes with shops(lodging-restaurants etc).

Lots to learn and appreciate for a day trip one can share with somebody special. Plan on stopping to read about its history and how it all came about. Then walk across and back while enjoying the views. Take time to explore around the base and supporting structures, shops and restaurants as well. It's a good way to spend a... More

This is only part of the original London Bridge from London England. Dismantled and each brick numbered and then rebuilt in Lake Havasu City, AZ. It connects the mainland with an island containing a bike/walking path, resorts, private homes and the most gorgeous sunsets ever seen.

This is really unique. Start out at the visitors center to get a good understanding of when, where, how and why the London Bridge was relocated to Lake Havasu, AZ. You can then walk across the bridge, see the lamps made out of cannons from Napoleon Bonaparte's army, take some pictures, walk along the waters edge and get a bite... More

We paddle boarded through it and makes you appreciate how big the bridge is. It really is a 5 minute sight, and then you can go about your day.

We had an option to drive through Lake Havasu on our way to Palm Springs. It was nice to see the original London Bridge, the visitor centre was very helpful. There were boat rides on the quayside if wanted. I wouldn't waste time just going to Lake Havasu, there appears to be lots of campsites, holiday places around the lake.
