When I arrived in London this spring and saw the bridges over the river Thames, I decided I had to walk them all as I have the goal of walking all the bridges in Pittsburgh and this was my one opportunity for doing the same in London. I did succeed in walking all thirteen of the pedestrian friendly bridges on my map of London in the few days I was there. I believe there may be two more bridges to the west which I should have crossed in order to be able to say I walked all the Thames bridges in Inner London, but due to the bend in the river and the limitations of my map I did not know of their existence until coming home. While walking the bridges I got a wide variety of views of London, some of which I would have missed otherwise, aided by London’s excellent river walkways. Over the next few weeks, look for posts describing my experiences and observations of the thirteen Thames bridges from Battersea Bridge to the Tower Bridge.
