Lambeth Bridge is a three lane road traffic and footbridge. Originally, it was designed by Peter W. Barlow and opened as a suspension and toll bridge in 1862 in place of the horse-ferry between Westminster and Lambeth Palace. The Lambeth bridge as we know it today, contains a five-span steel arch, designed by engineer Sir George Humphreys and architects Sir Reginald Blomfield and G. Topham Forrest. It was built by Dorman Long and opened on 19 July 1932 by King George V.

It is symbolically painted in red, to match the leather benches in the House of Lords which is closest to Lambeth Bridge in the Palace of Westminster.
On the northen side of the Lambeth Bridge, you will find the Millbank Tower, the MI5 Head Quarters in The Thames House and Tate Britain. On the southern side, Lambeth Palace, St. Thomas' Hospital and the International Maritime Organization.
In 2008, the bridge was added to Grade II listed structures, meaning that it has protection of protecting its design from changes to preserve its unique character. In particular, the bridge has a pair of obelisks on each side of the bridge surmounted by stone pinecones. They strongly resemble pineapple and it is thought that it is actually a tribute to a resident of Lambeth, John Tradescant the Younger, the man supposedly responsible for growing the first pineapple in Great Britain.
