It's been centuries since London Bridge was the only crossing point in London that didn't involve stepping into a boat. Now, London boasts over 35 bridges across the Thames, with many others spanning the canals, docks and smaller rivers. Here are a few of them (and one fake), courtesy of our friends in the Londonist Flickr pool.

With thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via Flickr: James Drew, Irina_C, Lee Rathmell, vilartoni, Jerry Clack, Naeem behind the lens, Martyn II, Harshit Verma, Kayode Okeyode, Philippe, Chris Chong and Khedara.
