Get it right- the bridges

Tower Bridge is the ornate light-blue coloured one, Millenium Bridge is the one that used to wobble and bridges St Pauls with Tate Modern, Jubilee is the bridge which bridges Charing Cross Station with Waterloo Station and London Bridge has the book fair beneath it of a weekend

DO NO AMERICANS KNOW THIS?! (Fergie included!)

Looks like she is not the only one.

WATERLOO BRIDGE IS THE ONE WITH THE BOOK SALE - South Bank side.

London Bridge is the one to go to for Borough Market

As I was watching her new video, I was thinking nonononononononononononononononono, stop encouraging people to think Tower Bridge is London Bridge.

Did the Jubilee Bridge used to be called the Hungerford Bridge? Was the pedestrian bridge work ever completed? It has been a few years. I remember barricades and puddles and no work being done.

Sort of

Hungerford Bridge is the railway bridge to Charing Cross station. It used to have a walkway along the east side which always seemed to be full of buskers and beggars. The new Jubilee Bridges are separate footbridges on either side of the railway bridge. This now gives good views east and west, although you have to change bridges to see both ways.

I'm not sure if it has a new name, because I still call it the Hungerford Bridge, but it has fancy new walk ways either side of the railway. It is marvellous, and has stunning views from either side. It's much less skanky all round than it used to be, and is well worth a visit.

To all that don't know which bridge we are talking about, it's the one right next to Embankment underground station (just down from Charing Cross station). It goes across to the Festival Hall on the Southbank.

Is there a bridge primer? Which bridge comes first, second, etc.?
