A little bit of history regarding the decoration on Westminster bridge.

Sir Charles Barry had won the commission (with Augustus Pugin) to rebuild the Houses of Parliament after they were destroyed by a fire in 1834. The newly fashionable Gothic style was used. Barry's contribution to the design of the Westminster Bridge included the Gothic quatrefoils in the spandrels of the arches and the ornamental shields, which display the coats of arms of England and of Westminster.
