Yes and no, London bridge is in London and there has been a bidge on the site for 2,000 years.. The current one was opened in 1973.. However the previous one which was in place from 1831 to 1968 is in Lake Havasu Arizona! An urban myth that the Amercian entreprenur thought he was buying the Tower …bridge has been denied by all parties in the sale. This bridge replaced the much older bridge which stood in pace for 600 years so it's not the original one.. The bridge was sold to Robert McCulloch who dismatled it and rebuilt it in a town in Arizona. The townspeople were very disappointed though as they thought they were getting Tower bridge - the bridge that opens up to let ships through. London bridge is a conventional bridge and much less iconic of London to tourists than the 1894 Tower Bridge which is still mistakenly refered to by many tourists as London Bridge. (MORE)

Peter of Colechurch between 1176 and 1209. Additional information: . This depends on which London Bridge is the subject of this question. There have been a number of different London Bridges over the past 2000 years. In 46AD, the Romans built the first bridge across the Thames River; it was a s…imple wooden construction which was burnt down in 1014. The replacement bridge was destroyed by a storm in 1091, and the next bridge after that was destroyed again by fire in 1136. A new stone bridge was built by Peter of Colechurch between 1176 and 1209. It served as the main bridge for centuries, until increasing traffic congestion made it obvious a new bridge was required. Engineer John Rennie started construction of the next London Bridge in 1825 and finished the bridge in 1831. However, a necessary widening process some 70 years later weakened the bridge's foundations to the point where it began sinking an inch every eight years. In 1968, it was auctioned and sold for $2,460,000 to Robert McCulloch who moved it to Havasu City, Arizona. The current London Bridge was constructed by contractors John Mowlem from 1967 to 1972, and officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 16 March 1973.. (MORE)

During my years in London (I'm Irish-Canadian) Londoners took the place for granted. They probably all did the tour as students and the sites are familiar. They say familiarity breeds contempt.
