The much maligned Millennium Bridge is a footbridge that opened in June 2000 as pedestrian crossing over the Thames linking the City of London with Bankside and is located between Southwalk and Blackfriars Bridges.
It was closed shortly after opening for 2 years due to unexpected swaying or vibrations before reopening in February 2002 and known as the “wobbly bridge”.
Since reopening it has proven a popular way to cross the river, your Harry Potter loving kids will be familiar with the bridge as it collapsed following an attack by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As a result a lot of the Harry Potter tours visit the bridge.
