ABOUT

Southwark Bridge is an arch bridge for traffic linking Southwark and the City across the River Thames in London.. Southwark Bridge was built to provide another crossing over the River Thames, to relieve increasingly heavy traffic congestion on the nearby Blackfriars and London bridges. Besides when others are closed for temporary repairs, it has the least traffic of the Thames bridges in London. On its 100-year-anniversary the bridge was illuminayed by colourful LED-lights. It also was featured in many films, including "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix".
