These pictures of Westminster Bridge are from a collection of photographs featuring the bridges over the River Thames in London. Westminster Bridge is a wonderful bridge and a pleasure to photograph because of its proximity to the Houses of Parliament, creating a beautiful historic backdrop. The current Westminster Bridge was built in 1862. At 748 feet long it links County Hall and Houses of Parliament. Westminster Bridge comprise seven elliptical wrought iron arches supported by granite piers, decorated by gothic shields. The green decor represents the colours of House of Commons.
