Millennium Bridge 

Nicknamed the wobbly bridge for its temperament to sway, the Millennium Bridge links several famous landmarks: St Pauls Cathedral, Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe meaning it can be photographed from every angle. When lit up at night it makes for an even more spectacular setting, but be sure to arrive early in the day or late at night so that it’s free from crowds.
