Visited Lake Havasu City on the way back from Las Vegas and stopped at the London Bridge. We spent a few minutes there looking at the bridge and taking a few photos. Nothing special when you look at it, but the history of it is what is special. There are some shopping areas near the bridge and a couple of hotels. It’s been quite a few years since we have visited and it is now built up around the ends of the bridge - used to be pretty wide open to view it.

I was surprised by the bridge itself as the area has been well developed and it is a working bridge with car and foot traffic over the bridge. Access from the bridge to the beach area below is available from various access points and the road to the bridge is a main street in the city. The bridge is over a canal area from Lake Havasu with the area well developed with parks walking paths, shops and places to rent boats etc. We were there during the Christmas Season and it was decorated nicely for the season. It was an especially pleasant experience in the evening when all the lights were lite.

We stopped here en route from CA to AZ. The place is a bizarre mashup between England and SoCal Vibes. Imagine listening to the Beach Boys while eating bruschetta and looking at London Bridge. Unless you're into water sports, an hour is all you need. The visitor center has a little museum/gift shop manned by a kind gentleman, a smattering of shops and restaurants, including what is apparently the world's best mac'n'cheese, ice cream & boba, and a couple of bar & grille type places.

I live in Lake Havasu City so I’m able to see the London Bridge any time I’d like. They recently added colored lights to the bridge, which are beautiful. I’ve only seen them at Christmas time, but I’m told they can pick any colors by use of a smart phone or computer. The picture I’m including is just a still picture, but they can also make the lights dance to music.

This bridge was designed in 1799 in London and in 1968 Mr McCullough Placed a winning bid for $2,460,000. They started the process of numbering each block before it was disassembled, loaded, then shipped. Passed through the Panama Canal and made it to Long Beach California. It eventually made it to a here and was reconstructed on October 10, 1971 Lake Havasu city became the home of the London bridge. It is a spectacular site.

I WOULD venture over the bridge again.

Those granite blocks have an amazing story to tell! The tour boat operators provide great information as to why, how and when the bridge came to Lake Havasu, and the museum's display rounds out the story. The visitor's center also has great information too. The excellent walking paths along the channel offer great views from both sides, and of course you can walk and drive over it too. To say Mr. McCullough and his team had a great idea would be an understatement. The only downside in the area is that the shops in the English Village are suffering economic woes and need some sprucing up.

The entire town of Lake Havasu is family friendly but the bridge is a fun place to take the kids. You can cross the bridge and take the kids to the park if you’re looking for things to do that don’t involve boating. The bridge itself has an interesting history that’s worth checking out while you’re in town.

We recently visited the London Bridge in Lake Havasu. It's a beautiful bride and crossing it twice didn't do it justice. Walking the trail and getting a side view, and looking up at it was amazing. The Colorado River is clear and the lake was beautiful. Fairy rides are available to take you across the lake to California and there's also a ferry ride that will take you the entire length of the lake which is spectacular. Why go on a cruise when you could cruise Lake Havasu?

The backstory of London Bridge is fascinating, the bridge itself is interesting only because of the story behind it. If you are expecting it to be an artistic piece of architecture you will probably be disappointed.

There is a tour by boat. During this Covid pandemic we did not want to be packed in a boat with a lot of other people, so this review is based on reading about the bridge, driving over it and just looking at it. The tour itself would probably be very informative. However, the tour will not change the structure, which is interesting but not worth driving out of the way to see.

Make sure you visit the Visitor's Center to get a full appreciation of the history of the bridge. Then enjoy walking around the area along the river. It's very well done with decent souvenir shops, bars and restaurants. Most have outdoor patios and the views are enjoyable.
We were there early in January and the buildings were covered with Christmas lights. It was so beautiful we went there three nights to enjoy the colorful displays.
