Tower Bridge in London is one of the most photogenic bridge I've ever seen. With one tower on each side of the River Thames, this draw bridge can be seen (and photographed) from many different vantage points up and down the river...I think we saw it each day we were in London. We did not experience the Tower Bridge Exhibition... More

Very ironic view with fantastic view of the river. Magnificent Tower. Watched the bridge part. Lovely day out to visit an interesting part of British History. Lots of interesting food places around the Tower Bridge too. Definitely worth a visit.....

The Tower bridge tour was an excellent choice as we were traveling with a year old and two teenagers.It was fun to walk over the bridge and the exhibition was good.Everyone totally enjoyed it and this iconic landmark now has a deeper meaning for us.

Tower Bridge is probably the most easily recognisable bridge in the world. It seems everyone knows the image of Tower Bridge, even those who confuse its name with the nearby London Bridge. It is one of the iconic and worldly images of England and something that all first time visitors should try to experience. Built between 1886 to 1894, Tower... More

This is the prettiest bridge I have seen in person. Once you exit the Tower of London take walk across the Tower Bridge. So many picture opportunities.

Great addition to the school holiday things to do list. Having crossed this bridge 100's of times we decided to visit it. It's an instantly recognizable icon and is in so many of our childhood photos in the background. I hadn't realised what fantastic views of London up and down the river it gives you by actually standing on it.... More

A must see, like it or not, you have seen it more than 1 time in your life. Get your jaw dropped with the engineering apparatus more than a century old.

It is enclosed by glass but with plenty of open windows at various heights your photos won't get ruined by reflection. The staff were... More

We took the tour, on the advice of the lady selling the tickets. I'm glad we did as our guide, Mandy was really interesting to listen to and by the end of the tour we felt like she was a friend! I had no idea how the bridge lifted up and it was really good to learn. I paid the... More

My title says it all. Its just awesome to see the bridge open and close. The bridge stands with so much grandeur, you are sure to skip a beat with its first site. Best visited in the evening.
