A popular tourist attraction in Lake Havasu City is London Bridge which crosses a canal that leads from Lake Havasu (on the Colorado River) to Thompson Bay. It was purchased from the city of London when the bridge was being replaced in 1968 for 2.5 million dollars. The bridge was disassembled, the stones marked, shipped to Lake Havasu City, and reassembled for another 7 million dollars. It opened again in October 1971. It has been claimed that it was purchased in the mistaken belief that it was the more grandiose Tower Bridge.
