Travelcard zone 1
Until the construction of Blackfriars Bridge in the 1760s London Bridge was the only river crossing within the City and was lined with shops and houses. Southwark Bridge was opened in 1819 but all these have been rebuilt over time. The iconic Tower Bridge was constructed in the 1890s and the infamous 'wobbly' Millennium Bridge is the newest crossing, designed for pedestrian use.

Refreshments are available at several places on the route, mainly on the south side.

This walk is 3 miles path and pavement walking. There are several flights of steps. The walk crosses the five bridges within and maintained by the City of London. It also includes other crossings of the river (ie railways and ferrys) in the area. [Route & what to see]
