I pretty much used to run along this bridge everyday and loved the calming views of the river. I went after 7 months with a friend and remembered how stunning it is. Lovely old style bridge with gorgeous views.

Great location with lots going on, just sit, relax and watch the world go by as well as the boats and people.
Lots to see and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from as well as being close to the shops. Great place.

is a road bridge at Kingston upon Thames in southwest London, across the River Thames.A bridge that you need to cross if you want to make a river sidewalk on both sides. Not bad.

It gets you over the River Thames..without swimming or using a boat.
That sums it up in a nutshell I believe...

The view from and of the bridge is fantastic. It is an iconic place worth a walk down visit if you are close by.

Extremely busy road bridge over the Thames in Kingston. However, it's worth the walk over, as there are some excellent views from both sides.

There has been a bridge on this site since medieval times. The present bridge is built of Portland Stone and opened in 1828. Tolls were abolished in 1870. Its eastern side is in Kingston town centre a view rather marred by rather unprepossessing commercial developments. Its western side, however, feels immediately more rural and provides access to Hampton Court. A walk along the river on the Kingston side passes numerous new restaurants, an impressive quantity of waterfowl, particularly swans, and close to the Rose Theatre, one of the most impressive and popular local theatres to have been built anywhere in London in the last decade or so.

It is claimed that a bridge existed here in Saxon times, well before Norman times. Having said that there is no real evidence to support this and it is more likely that a Kingston Bridge was first built in the 1190's. The bridge has been rebuilt several times since and in January 1814 part of the bridge collapsed. In 1825 an act of Parliament authorised construction of a brand new bridge. This was opened on 17th July 1828 and is more or less what we see today. It was a toll bridge up until 1870. It is Grade 2 listed and locals will know has been widened. most recently to accommodate a bus lane. It is 116 metres long and 7.25 metres high and carries over 50,000 vehicles daily over The Thames. Parking available in the Bentall multi-storey carpark in Kingston, well signed.
