Tower Bridge (built 1886–1894) is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London.
The bridge deck is freely accessible to both vehicles and pedestrians, whilst the bridge’s twin towers, high-level walkways and Victorian engine rooms form part of the Tower Bridge Exhibition, for which an admission charge is made. The nearest London Underground tube stations are Tower Hill on the Circle and District lines, London Bridge and Bermondsey, and the nearest Docklands Light Railway station is Tower Gateway.
Famous historical bridge that connects the city to the south of the Thames. Definitely most gorgeous and famous of all the bridges in London, Great architecture, Elizabethan Engineering at its best. This has got to be one of the most quintessentially British of all Landmarks. Looks great any time of day but is glorious lit up on fine evening. A must visit if you are every in London.
If you have London Pass so it’s free. Many interesting information up there about the tower bridge and also about bridges around the world. There are two points where you can see road and water through glass windows panel. You can lie on this floor and watch the people and traffic pass below, amazing. The engineering and history were also interesting.
Amazing attraction with some great views of the river Thames and beyond some of London’s land marks and attractions can be seen. It’s just one of those things you need to see when in London whether you do it from land or from the water. Definitely worth it.
