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

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

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

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

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.

Tower Bridge: Our 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!

Good to Know

What People Are Saying About Tower Bridge

One of the highlights of our London visit

My husband and I booked this tour last minute and would recommend it to anyone heading to London. Borough Market wasn't even on our radar, so getting to see such an interesting and tasty place was great! Steve was a great guide and storyteller :) We were a little skeptical initially about cost, but the amount and quality of food (and drinks!) that were made available to us was well worth it.

Really amazing experience! I would definitely recommend it to someone who will visit London.

Fantastic service! Very helpful and extremely disabled friendly!

The staff were so helpful and kind. They got a chair for my disabled mum and made sure she got on the boat first. Very friendly and extremely relaxing. Would definitely recommend

Cockney commentary made for a hilarious trip.

A great way to see many of the top tourist sights in London. Relaxed & very entertaining commentary told us new facts about the area that we were unaware of. Highly recommend!
