Top sights in London
London's iconic Tower Bridge is as extravagantly British as is possible for a bridge to be! It's undoubtedly a must-see. So how do you make the most of your visit to this unique triumph of engineering?
42 meters above the river, Tower Bridge's new glass walkway provides a knee-knocking view of the boats and pedestrians passing beneath your feet. Don't worry, it's quite safe!
The East Walkway not only offers great views across London's historic trading ports and buildings, but is also used as one of the city's most unique exhibition spaces.
Today the bridge is held up by Wi-Fi and selfies (probably), but the old engine rooms demonstrate the former logistic miracle that powered it, complete with authentic sounds and smells!
The short westward stroll leaving Tower Bridge offers a view spanning City Hall, HMS Belfast, and the Shard!
While at Tower Bridge, there are few excuses not to visit its historic namesake, the Tower of London. If you're short on time, the nearby gardens of St. Dunstan-in-the-East are a worthy substitute.
The closest Tube station to Tower Bridge is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines. The Tower Gateway DLR station is just as close.
Bridge lifts are booked in advance for passing ships. There is no set schedule, but if you want to be sure to see the event, times can be easily found on Tower Bridge's official website. Failing that, you can book a bridge lift yourself for free. All you need is a very tall boat!
- When should I visit?You can view and walk across the bridge 24 hours a day - just watch out for when it opens up!
- Is it expensive?Free to walk across. The exhibition costs about £10 depending on ticket type
- Will I need a guide?It will definitely help. It's worth checking out our best-selling tours.
- How to get thereThis attraction is within walking distance from most hotels in city center!
- Additional information*It can get cold and windy by the river, so wrap up.
*Tower Bridge and the Tower of London itself make a great day out - it could be a good idea to get a ticket that covers both.
What people are saying about Tower Bridge
Great way to see the city and very informative! Booked for 72hrs but should have done less.
Really enjoyed the tour of the Tower of London. Our group was very small (only five people). Our guide (Rob?) was a history teacher, and he was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
Was convenient,clean,informative and just an all-round pleasant experience! We loved it!
The queue in front of the Tower Bridge entrance was not too bad. We had to wait for approx. 10 minutes. We were there the week before Easter. There is a lift, which takes you up to the top. The Tower Bridge was a very good experience, especially both glass bottoms on top of the Tower Bridge. It was not too crowded, so we had a good view from the top of the Bridge. Please be aware, that you first walk over both glass bottom sides before you leave the top and go downstairs to the exit or the machine room. The machine room is outside the Tower Bridge, so you have to exit and follow a blue line on the ground, which leads you to the machine room. Once you have left for exit or visiting the machine room, you can´t go back on the top of the Tower Bridge. Enjoy it! :-)
Gets u round London but does take a while to get through traffic so expect to cover 2 to 3 places a day at a push
