This bridge has featured in many films like Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, James Bond’s Spectre and in Fast and the Furious as Moscow. There used to be a bridge here which was built in 1862. It was a disaster as it could not transport horse carriages. Charles Dickens called it the ugliest bridge ever. The current bridge was completed in 1932 and it was inaugurated by George V and Queen Mary jointly. It gives you lovely view of the Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. It was designed by architects Sir Reginald Blomfield and G. Topham Forrest. It is an arched steel bridge with embellished obelisks on it. On each end you can see the London Council’s Court of Arms and graceful dolphins. This bridge is painted red to match the seats in the the House of Lords. The bridge is believed to posses some strange Masonic symbols on it.

One of the more modern Thames crossings built in 1932, a successor to a number of previous structures. It’s predominant red colouring is said to refer to the colour of the benches in the House of Lords, while the green motif on Westminster Bridge upstream mimics the colour of the benches in the House of Commons. Whether that’s true or not, it’s a great place to get a perfect view of the Houses of Parliament, as well as Lambeth Palace on its eastern end.

Used the bridge multiple times during the coronation weekend staying in the Novotel hotel. It’s not as grand as the Westminster bridge but the view down the Thames and of the Parliament and Lambeth Palace are a treat. It’s also less busy than it’s neighbouring bridge.

I am originally from London and much of my youth travelling around my beautiful home city. These days I live on far shores from my old home town.
There are many things about London that I look back on with admiration, but one that stands out to me quite regularly is Lambeth Bridge and the view from it as you crossed it. It was always considered a fact locally that when you go into the tourist parts of London, you will see many foreigners gathering together on Westminster Bridge, just to the north and that it would be considered as THE photographic place to take a picture of the London landscape, I disagree, if you are visiting London compare this to Lambeth Bridge, I think you'll be suitably impressed, firstly it is a far better looking and more colourful bridge, with a very red highlighting throughout. next is the view, London skyline, houses of parliament, lambeth palace, MI5 HQ, Tate Britain just to name a few. One thing is guaranteed, you will be on your own here too, so you are in a place that is better than the other Thames magnets, and yet you are just five minutes walk from them.
One thing that also impressed me as a youngster was the fact that at each end of the bridge the are two columns with pineapples on top of them, this signifies that the bridge was built to celebrate the life of a local botanist, who apparently was the first to bring pineapples to Britain and also to successfully grow them too, and the answer is no, his name was NOT Del Monte!
Please visit this bridge, it is truly beautiful.
One thing that really grates me is the fact that the other reviewer of this bridge said it is just a bridge, whats the point in writing a review about something if you have such a nonchalant opinion BORING. Lambeth Bridge is part of the life blood of this city and i can guarantee you every local has had something major happen either on or near it, I know I have, but that's another story! The gentleman who passed that comment is from bulgaria, could you imagine if i went on holiday to bulgaria and just said 'yeah well, it's just another european country innit?' I don't think so!

Great spot where you get a good shot of Parliament and the eye all together. Got barriers to stop vans and cars driven by maniacs mounting pavement.

From The London Eye we strolled down the South Bank to Lambeth Bridge passing Lambeth Palace on the left hand side...great spot for taking photos of the Houses of Parliament..Lambeth Bridge seemed nice and quiet compared to the more city centre crossings.

Near to Westminster and the London Eye. Five defined arches and great surroundings. It’s really nice and well worth a visit.

This offers some great photos of Big Ben, the River Thames, House of Lords, London Eye among many other things. I would suggest using this bridge if you want to cross to the other side, as it tends to be less busy making it easier to gain a clear photo and navigate.
