On Location: The Millennium Bridge

The other day I had climbed to the very top of St Pauls Cathedral, and there were about a million tiny schoolchildren running around on the precariously high platform. One of the children cried out, “That’s the bridge from Harry Potter that gets destroyed by the Death Eaters!”, and I instantly knew he was right because I am a huge nerd. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), a whole bunch of Death Eaters storm London and cause chaos for the Muggles going about their business there. The bridge in question (roughly in the centre of the first photo) is a spindly looking suspension bridge called the Millennium Bridge, which essentially leads from St Pauls to the Tate Modern museum (which is amazing), linking the old and the new of London together.

Hint for tomorrow’s location: Where the demons dwell, where the banshees live and they do live well.

  1. Oh – you’re very brave! I tried to go to the top of St Paul’s Cathedral & had a panic attack & had to go back down. Have fun at Stonehenge – my very favorite place in England!!! 🙂

    1. It was so amazing I did it twice (photos from the second trip up have a significantly bluer sky!). But if I was scared of heights or confined spaces I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Stonehenge was so amazing as well. Definitely both places that I would want to visit again!

  2. hold on to that railing… 🙂

    1. Definitely held on tight, the wind up there was pretty ferocious!

  3. You’ve got this covered by all angles! Nice shots.

    1. Thanks Jay! Such an amazing view from up there!
