The Hammersmith Bridge is a suspension bridge across the River Thames in London, located in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. The bridge, built by the engineer William Tierney Clark in 1824, is one of the oldest bridges in London. Due to heavy traffic, it had to be reconstructed in 1884 by the engineer Joseph Bazalgette Laureate, who was mainly known for the construction of the sewer which helped to eradicate the epidemics of different diseases in the city. The new bridge was inaugurated by the Prince of Wales on 11 June 1887.
The bridge is only 13 metres wide, and has two-way traffic. It is painted bottle green and has golden elements. Its two arches are lit at night giving the bridge a unique appearance at night. The Hammersmith Bridge can be admired from the terraces and pubs on the Thames.
