Three Bridges is a scheduled monument near Hanwell in west London, United Kingdom, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Work began in 1856, and was completed in 1859.

The three bridges are a clever arrangement allowing the routes of the Grand Junction Canal, Great Western and Brentford Railway, and Windmill Lane to cross each other - road above canal above railway.

The project was Brunel's last before he died on 15 September 1859, just two months after its completion.
