London Bridge is a bridge across the Thames River in London.
It connects the London boroughs of the City and Southwark, serving as a link to different tourist attractions such as Southwark Cathedral on its south side and the The Monument to the Great Fire of London on its north side.
This bridge is often confused with the nearby Tower Bridge. The London Bridge was the first bridge built in the city and there are various documents pointing to the fact that the bridge has existed in this particular spot for over 2000 years. The London Bridge was destroyed entirely in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and its reconstruction was conducted by John Mowlem's company. The current bridge, built between 1967 and 1972, is 283 metres long. It looks especially beautiful at dusk because of the way it is illuminated.
