The London Millennium Foot Bridgealso known as ‘The Wobbly Bridge’, was designed by Arup, Foster & Partners & Sir Anthony Caro and built 1998-2000. Once the wobble was stabilised the bridge was opened permanently in 2002 . The bridge links bankside to the City and leads directly to St Paul’s Cathedral.
