The current Westminster Bridge was designed by Thomas Page and opened in 1862. It is 252 m (826.8 ft) long and a 26 m (85 ft) wide. This is the only seven-arch wrought iron bridge across the Thames. It has architectural detailing by Charles Barry who designed the nearby Palace of Westminster. The bridge is painted green to match the seats of the House of Commons.
