London has many bridges spanning the River Thames between the city of London and Southwark, in central London. Fun Fact: the original London Bridge is actually in Arizona. The Original London bridge was built in the 1830s, but was dismantled in 1967 and relocated to Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

The London Bridge that still stands today dates from 1973. Actual bridge standing today is one of the more modern bridges in London. Tower Bridge is another bridge that was opened in 1894 and is a purely Victorian bridge.

This documentary takes a look at the timeline of all of the bridges in London.

Bridges in London are more than just a means of transport. They are way of linking present to the past, symbols, metaphors, and inspiration for millions of Londoners on a daily basis.
