London Bridge, contrary to belief, is not a place. It actually refers to several historic bridges that spanned the River Thames. The history of these bridges has led to tens of buildings being named ‘London Bridge’, such as the London Bridge Underground Station in Southwark and the London Bridge Hospital. The current London Bridge opened in 1973 and is maintained by Bridge House Associates and City of London Corporation. It’s a 269-metre long, 32-metre wide girder bridge that connects the A321 in Central London with the A200.
The London Bridge is one of the most iconic and historic structures in England. However, the modern bridge is hardly the most beautiful. That accolade falls to the 19th-century London Bridge which replaced the 600-year old medieval bridge. This bridge was designed by John Rennie and was located 30-metres upstream of the original, medieval bridge. It had classic 19th-century architecture and served its purpose of letting river traffic through. The modern London Bridge was built in the same location as the 19th-century one. Sadly, the previous bridge was demolished. However, the stone used in that bridge lives on in other buildings.
