booked in advance on internet so fast track into the attraction, informative lay out and could look out through small open windows for good view of the Thames, engine room worth a visit to see old machinery used to raise the bridge, bought a combo ticket so could do the monument as well

Decided to visit here as had purchased a London pass and it was included, had a good visit, easily accessible and interesting information, no limit to the time you can stay up and learning about things that I wouldn't normally have looked at. The views where fantastic and it was a warm clear day so got some great photos. Definitely... More

I live a stone's throw away and love this bridge. The exhibition on the walkway is great and I was lucky to get a half price deal for £4. I thought I would be finished in 30 minutes but spent 2.5 hours there. Exhibition tells you how this bridge is made - from metal with stone facia. Also shows history... More

Tower Bridge is one of London's most iconic locations and it is a wonderful area to spend a few days exploring the historic part of the city. The wonderful Hermitage Community moorings are just downstream from the bridge and make an excellent backdrop for any photo, particularly at high tide. Plenty of small restaurants round here and ancient pubs that... More

Great attraction, easily accesed walking around London area. Inexpensive, lots of history and information well presented. Only down side is entrance access not clearly signposted, we walked along left side of bridge hoping to cross at lights at centre, no we had to walk back half the bridge. No big deal.

Although I had been in London many times, never got a chance to do a night tour until last weekend. Absolutely worth of it!

We viewed the Tower Bridge from our Thames River tour. Amazing to see it function. It is well worth to see how impressive as it is.

I walked the bridge quite often, to get from one place to another and at some point, I also went inside to the exhibition. The exhibition was mainly a video about the building of this bridge, photographs of the making and photographs of other famous bridges around the world and some blueprints. It was all very nice and informative and... More

We loved climbing this bridge and learning all about it, such an icon. We brought a joint money saving ticket to climb the monument too
