The new London Bridge opened 1831

The old London bridge was a bridge like no other bridge in the world.

    • It was a thoroughfare, jammed full of houses and shops and passable only with caution and if you had time to spare.
    • The old bridge was not able to cope with growing demands of an expanding city
    •  A new bridge was designed by the architect, John Rennie
    • It was opened by King William IV on the 1st August 1831.
