London events > London events in October > London events on 10th October Need some inspiration for 10th October? London Bridge was re-opened on this day in 1971 – in Arizona. The City of London decided to build a new one and sold the old stones to an American oil-man who re-assembled them in Lake Havasu City. Why not go and see the present-day one? It has a great view of Tower Bridge.
