Great feats of engineering and architectural works of beauty, the city bridges we cross everyday are as iconic to London as Big Ben and red phone boxes.

Drawing on the museum's significant art collections, Bridge is the largest art exhibition ever to be staged at the Museum of London Docklands and features rarely seen contemporary and historical artworks, alongside photography and film, to consider the significance of bridges within London’s landscape.

From Hungerford to Blackfriars, Westminster and Millennium, Bridge also looks at how London’s bridges allow people to move around and experience the city, and looks ahead to projects such as Thomas Heatherwick’s ambitious ‘Garden Bridge’ proposal to consider how this landscape may change.
