London Bridge

London Bridge London Bridge, EC3
Monument, London Bridge

This fabled bridge across the Thames River, noted in story and rhyme, has a colorful and continuous history that dates back to Roman times. The first London Bridge was built by Romans sometime after 43 AD and some of its wooden remains have been uncovered on the north side of the river. During its life the wooden structure was renewed several times. At one time, one of these structures was washed away by a flood, and another was torn down by invading Vikings, led by Olaf the Norseman in 1014.
