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 to visitYou can view and walk across the bridge 24 hours a day - just watch out for when it opens up!
- What is the price?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 tips*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
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend this trip. Perfect in every way, nice food and wonderful staff.
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.
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
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!
