Golden Jubilee Bridge

3 reviews of Golden Jubilee Bridge

Award winning designs

These footbridges were placed on either side of the Hungerford Bridge to celebrate the Golden Jubilee. Built to replace old bridges that were very narrow and considered dangerous, they have won engineering awards for their complicated design. The construction was difficult, with hazards like the subway tunnel under the river, the possibility of World War II era bombs in the river bed, and the rail traffic over Hungerford Bridge. The bridges are 4 feet wide and were completed in 2002. The views from them are really nice.


Should not be missed

Golden Jubilee Bridge crosses the River Thames near the London Eye, from the Victoria Embankment Garden to the Jubilee Gardens. This bridge has one of the best views of London on the Thames - to the right Parliament with Big Ben in the foreground, to left the London Eye. Of course this should not be missed!
