Hungerford Bridge

Victoria Embankment

Hungerford Bridge is a railway bridge that supports trains out of Charing Cross station, originally built in 1864. On either side are two 'new' pedestrian bridges allowing access to either side of the river Thames. On the river, it is located between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, close to the London Eye.

If you are heading across to the South Bank Skate Park in pursuit of mysterious ciphers like Sherlock, John and Raz, make sure to turn to admire Charing Cross behind you. Making the trip at dusk or even night time is highly recommended.

Episodes Hungerford Bridge has appeared in

The Blind Banker (Episode 2, Series 1)

If you wanted to walk across in the same direction as Sherlock, John and Raz, then you want to cross via the northern side of the bridge, having come directly down Northumberland Avenue (presumably via The Sherlock Holmes Pub). The nearest Tube station is Embankment [Circle, District, Northern, Bakerloo] but this will leave you on the wrong side of the bridge to make the onscreen crossing - head south along Victoria Embankment and under the bridge to find the other set of stairs up.
