London: Lambeth Bridge Panorama

London: Lambeth Bridge Panorama

Lambeth Bridge is a road traffic and footbridge crossing the River Thames in an east-west direction in central London, England.

The most conspicuous colour in the bridge’s paint scheme is red, the same colour as the leather benches in the House of Lords which is at the southern end of the Palace of Westminster nearest the bridge. This is in contrast to Westminster Bridge which is predominantly green, the same colour as the benches in the House of Commons at the northern end of the Houses of Parliament.

The current structure, a five-span steel arch, designed by engineer Sir George Humphreys and architect Sir Reginald Blomfield, was built by Dorman Long and opened on 19 July 1932 by King George V.
