History: *For such a new bridge, it already has a lot of history. Opened on the 10th June in the year 2000, then promptly closed due to an “unexpected lateral vibration” – hence its nickname as The Wobbly – sometimes even Wibbly Wobbly – Bridge. Reopened in 2002. Its official – and largely unused – nickname is “The Blade of Light”.
Famous Friends: The bridge features in the 2009 movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Did You Know…?: The bridge’s famous “wobble” was first experienced on a charity walk in aid of Save the Children.
