Click here to proceed to the information on the Thames Bridges
The River Thames is Great Britain's second longest river. It stretches for 215 miles from its source in the Cotswold Hills to the open sea near Southend in Essex. For most of its length it is traversed by bridges both small and large, which carry motorised transport, walkers and cyclists over the Thames.
This section of the River Thames Guide aims to pinpoint the locations of the various bridges over the Thames, and to describe their use or highlight their historical, architectural or other merits. If you want to see our Top Ten favourites click here!
The artist Doug Myers has kindly agreed to the reproduction of several of his beautiful paintings of the bridges across the River Thames to illustrate my text. I acknlowedge with thanks his generous contribution to the project. If you want to see more of Doug Myer's work, visit http://www.dougmyers.co.uk
