Cross in the evenings for a stunning view of St. Paul's.
NileGuide Expert tip:
There are great views of the bridge from Tate Modern.
- London's first Thames crossing in over a century opened in 2000 with a well-publicised wobble, shut temporarily and was subsequently destroyed completely in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Magically the "Blade of Light" has recovered both from its engineering teething troubles and movie mayhem, and is now transporting Muggles across the river, 370 metres and 400 years back in time, from 21st century Tate Modern, to 17th-century St Paul's Cathedral.
