Celebrate the 120th anniversary of Tower Bridge and the contribution of London’s other bridges at Bridge, the largest and most ambitious exhibition to have been staged at the Museum of London Docklands.
Bridge draws on the museum’s vast collection of significant artworks, many of which are incredibly rare and have not been seen in public. Alongside these treasures are historic photographs, film and maquettes featuring London's bridges. Combined, these elements build a fascinating picture of just how bridges have shaped London’s landscape.
Taking in the bridges from Hungerford to Blackfriars and from Westminster to the Millennium Bridge, this extensive exhibition shows how the bridges have enabled people to move around and interact with the city.
One important aspect of the show is a look at the future with Thomas Heatherwick’s ambitious Garden Bridge proposal; a bridge that would continue the tradition of iconic structures above the Thames.
