The Westminster Bridge is located in London, England, and it is a road and foot traffic bridge over the River Thames between Westminster, Middlesex bank and Lambeth, Surrey bank.
This line portrays the river as being a quiet, slowly meandering river... moving at a calm pace.

C) The first thought that comes to mind is of a river flowing gently, meandring along happily at its own sweet will. There is no turbulence, no hectic activity going on. All is peaceful.

The poem, westminster bridge is composed by William Wordsworth..; Westminster is located in London..on the river Thames..;

the poet is portraying a picture of london in the small hours of the day...; everything is calm and quiet all around..; even the river thames seems to be flowing at its own sweet will absolutely unperturbed as the steamers and the barges are lying still on the thames........

A) Westminster Bridge is a road and foot traffic bridge between Westminster, Middlesex bank, and Lambeth, Surrey bank in what is now Greater London, England.

b) It is built over over the River Thames.

c) Thinking of bridges the only image of the bridge that comes to my mind is Howrah Bridge. I have never seen anything more magnificient than Howrah bridge. But westmnister bridge is much older. It has it's own importance. It has seven arches whereas Howrah bridge does not have any arches.
