“It's a bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

There is not a huge amount to do around here but it leads to good places and has good views. Make sure you visit the very atmospheric Victorian street called Roupell Street with its lovely Konditor and Cook. Best bet is to walk the river and also check out the book market and cafes under the bridge.

“One of the most stunning views in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The views from Waterloo Bridge are, in my opinion, probably the best in London. Owing to the curve of the river it seems to me to be the best place to see both Westminster and the City. A very romantic spot to go and stand at night.

“Waterloo Bridge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2009

Seen in most views of London, Waterloo Bridge crosses from the north Aldwych side across the Thames to the South Bank / IMAX cinema roundabout.
A perfect and popular place to view New Year Eve fire works or to watch the thousands going to work (on a nice morning)
The bridge was the seen of the notorious political assassination of Georgi Markovin 1978.
The exit at the Southbank IMAX side isn't pleasant with the "bull ring" area a regualr haunt for the homeless and druggies.
