List of bridges in London lists the major bridges within Greater London or within the influence of London. Most of these are river crossings, and the best-known are those across the River Thames. Several bridges on other rivers have given their names to areas of London, particularly where the whole river has become subterranean. Other bridges are high level road or rail crossings across other streets.
Bridges over the River Thames, listed in order travelling from East to West. Multiple values in "Dates opened" pertain to earlier bridges at the site of the current structure.

The Illuminated River
In 2016 a competition was run to find a design company willing to take on a permanent lighting project on the River Thames, covering 15 bridges, from Tower Bridge to Albert Bridge. A design by Leo Villareal was chosen as the winner in November 2016. This will be one of the UK's largest ever public art commissions. The first phase - Southwark Bridge, Millennium Bridge, London Bridge and Cannon Street Bridge - was switched on on 17 July 2019. Illumination is by LEDs and replaces former less efficient forms of lighting in places. An article in The Guardian stated: "The project... has been much trickier and taken longer to realise than anticipated." A three-part Channel 4 documentary, which started on 6 July 2019, covered the project up to the end of the first phase.
