I Like this bridge as it has lovely old-fashioned lamposts. On the south bank of the river there is a tunnel under the bridge and very often there are buskers there.

Not especially attractive, but functional, linking important parts of town, but not pretty. Views of the Thames.

This is an arch bridge across the River Thames for traffic linking Southwark and the City. Recently restored, its green and gold colour is strikingly lovely. Best views of the bridge can be seen from the river.

Once this bridge allowed direct access from Bank to Southwark, but the north end has a pedestriansed cut off. The arches can been seen underneath also via the small south bank beach

Best bit of the bridge is the tunnel under the road on bankside. The bridge itself is rather unexciting

Southwark bridge has nice architecture but the most interesting part is actually the scenery from the bridge itself.
