Something to watch out for

Illuminated River is a large-scale art project, which will see illuminations installed on bridges across the River Thames. Each artwork will celebrate the role of the Thames’ bridges in connecting communities on the north and south sides of the river. Initially, four bridges will be lit up; London Bridge, Cannon Street Bridge, Southwark Bridge and the Millennium Bridge.

Up to 15 bridges across the Thames will be illuminated by 2022, from Albert Bridge in west London to Tower Bridge in the City, a stretch of 4.5 nautical miles. Installation work on the first four bridges mentioned above is due to start in early 2019, and the illuminations should be up and running by summer 2019. Once the illuminations are installed, they will be permanently visible at dark, to be enjoyed for free by anyone in the vicinity.
