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 most well-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
