What to see in and around Tower Bridge

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?

Glass Walkway

Glass Walkway

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!

East Walkway

East Walkway

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.

Victorian Engine Rooms

Victorian Engine Rooms

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!

North Bank

The short westward stroll leaving Tower Bridge offers a view spanning City Hall, HMS Belfast, and the Shard!

Tower of London

Tower of London

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.

Our insider tips

How to get there?

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.

How often does the bridge open?

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!

Very convienient and a great overview of the city and it's major sites

Great way to see the city and very informative! Booked for 72hrs but should have done less.

Very interesting tour by a knowledgeable guide

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.

The Original London Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Bus Tour Reviewed by

GYG voucher worked perfect. Tower Bridge is definitely worth seeing.

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! :-)
