Hammersmith Suspension Bridge
During your next stay at our Hammersmith hotel take yourself down to the Hammersmith Suspension Bridge (less than ten minutes away) by the River Thames.
This gorgeous bridge was first constructed in 1824 and was designed by one of the earliest ever suspension bridge engineers William Tierney Clark. Since then it has been reconstructed several times as traffic continued to increase through the years.
This bridge is undoubtedly beautiful. Its iron starkness juxtaposes with River Thames, enhancing its industrial prowess and metal majesty. A must see sight to behold during your next London visit.
