More London


The Romans were the first to bridge the Thames in almost 2000 years ago. The Roman roads of Stane Street and Watling Street lead to it from the south coast. There followed a series of timber bridges and a stone medieval bridge that was in use for 600 years until the 19th century. The current bridge dates from 1973.
As the only bridge in London before the 1700s, it was a major transport hub and settlements grew on the north and south sides. This was the centre of London's seafaring trade in the Pool of London and the area bustled with cargo ships, ferries, wharves, and warehouses. The area was also the start of the pilgrimage to Canterbury made famous by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales from the 1300s.
