Westminster Bridge es un puente sobre el río Támesis que une Westminster y Lambeth, en Londres, Inglaterra.
El puente actual fue diseñado por Thomas Page y abrió en 1862. Con una longitud total de 76,2 metros, una anchura de 26 metros, y sus siete arcos, conforman un puente de metal con detalles góticos de Charles Barry (el arquitecto del Palacio de Westminster). Es el único puente sobre el Támesis que tiene siete arcos y es el más antiguo de la zona central del río. Cuando fue construido tenía dos vías de tren de dos metros de anchura que en 1952 fueron eliminadas.
El color predominante en el puente es el verde, el mismo color del cuero de la tapicería de los asientos de la Cámara de los Comunes que está en la zona del Palacio de Westminster más cercana al puente. Este color contrasta con el color de Lambeth Bridge que es rojo, como los asientos de la Cámara de los Lores que está en el lado opuesto del Parlamento.
En 2005 se llevó a cabo una completa remodelación, que fue terminada en 2007. Esta remodelación tenía como finalidad devolver al puente su antigua gloria, reemplazando las plachas de metal y repintándolo por completo.
