One of Lake Havasu's most celebrated attractions is the 161-year-old London Bridge, the world's largest antique. Each year an estimated one and a half million tourists worldwide flock to view the granite span brought to Lake Havasu by industrialist Robert P. McCulloch Sr., who founded Lake Havasu in 1964. McCulloch purchased the 10,000-ton London Bridge, which spanned the Thames River for 148 years on April 17, 1968, for a cost of $2,460,000.
Lake Havasu City has long been known as America's home for the London Bridge. Purchased in England, and reassembled in Lake Havasu City, the London Bridge has become one of Arizona's most unique tourist attractions. Showcasing the bridge is the recreation of an English Village.
Located beneath the bridge is the English Village. For many visitors, the English Village will be their first stop for a picture of the London Bridge, and to browse the many shops, restaurants, and night clubs lining the manmade channel beneath its arches. Surrounding this colorful oasis is scenery that is exceptional even by Arizona standards.
