Bridges over the River Thames in London

Twenty-four bridges span the Thames in London, from Kew Bridge to Tower Bridge. Some our railway bridges and there is a footbridge, howeer most are road bridges. The oldest is London Bridge, which was originally made from wood. In 1209 it was replaced by a stone bridge with shops and houses along its sides. This was followed by a granite bridge in 1831, and the present concrete bridge in 1973

Lambeth Bridge is the central bridge of the three bridges in the photograph. Nearest the camera is Westminster Bridge and in the far distance is Vauxhall Bridge.
