The Bridges That Define London

The best way to see London is, arguably, from a bridge on the River Thames. Waterloo or Westminster? London or Lambeth? The river crossings in the heart of the city offer panoramic views.

The Museum of London, at Docklands, is celebrating these north-south links – which have been crucial to London’s growth, but also inspirational to artists and poets. Take a look with curator, Francis Marshall.


Bridge, at Museum of London (Docklands), is on until 2 November 2014.
