The Millennium Bridge is right in front of Tate Modern. Yes, it’s a just bridge. But if you’re into photographing gorgeous places in London at night, don’t skip this. Millennium Bridge is a photogenic place to be – even if you only have a point and shoot camera. It’s all about the right angle to capture the bridge in all its perfect moment and light.
I’d suggest to go there after 8 in the evening. If you go there before that, there’ll be a lot people passing by and your shots won’t be as dramatic as mine below. 😉
For the locals, the Millennium Bridge is also known as the “Wobbly Bridge” because pedestrians felt the swaying motion.
It is a footbridge that connects London and the Bankside.
On the Bankside, you can see Tate Modern Gallery. Few steps from here, you’ll find Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. (The photo below is taken from the upper floor of Tate Modern)
And on the London side, you’ll find the glowing St. Paul Cathedral.
This 330-meter suspension footbridge appears on the 6th instalment of Harry Potter movies. You can also recognize it in the 2014 movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Saving Tips in London
To make your trip easier, without having to worry where to go, what transport to take and without having to join the queue for the ticket, you’d better buy or London Pass. Both can save you a lot of money and time, especially if you’re gonna be in the city for just a couple of days.
WHERE TO STAY IN LONDON
Well, we all know that London isn’t cheap. Getting an affordable place to stay in the middle of action or of everything is a definitely a challenge to browse from one website to another. Then I found. And yes, it’s in Soho and very accessible to the metro / subway, shops, bars, restaurants, groceries, and more. The rooms aren’t cramped but also not spacious. I love the bold colors in their interior and wifi was pretty good.
