Westminster BridgeWestminster Bridge lies on the Thames between the Houses of Parliament and County Hall with the delights of the Southbank Centre and the National Theatre beyond. The view is exceptional in every direction, taking in Parliament, Whitehall, the Strand, South Bank and beyond that the City and the London Eye. Take to the bridge for a sight that moved William Wordsworth to write these lines in 1802: "Earth has not anything to show more fair: Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty."
