 Lambeth Bridge crosses the River Thames east-west between Lambeth and Westminster.

The bridge is just a short walk from the Houses of Parliament, Lambeth Palace (official residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury) and St. Thomas' Hospital.

The present bridge was opened in 1932. It replaced a suspension bridge which had opened in 1862 but which rapidly fell into disrepair and was used only by pedestrians.
