A great variety of short videos, pictures, displays, history as well as practical--how the bridge was built and why, and how the bridge is raised for ships (about 1,000 times a year). It is self-paced and easy to move about. A highlight is the clear 'glass' skylight on the upper level looking down at the Thames [especially when boats pass... More

In my opinion, the most impressive bridge in London (so many people think this is London Bridge though!) Definitely worth a walk across when in London, and it is perfectly located to get to other sights such as Tower of London and the South Bank.

Thought the whole experience was well worth it, booked on-line, saves money, soon through the queue and up to the top by lift, information really good, at the first and the tower across the other side, walked along one side (solid floor) then down the other side over the glass floor, great experience seeing thre traffic and boats below.

We took the London Bridge tour and loved it. I was kind of hesitant about taking the tour but am so glad we did. We enjoyed stunning views from the high level walkways to the Victorian Engine Rooms where we learned about the inner workings of the most famous bridge in the world. Very interesting! Great photo opportunities from the... More

A different tour, as you guide yourself. Plenty of history to understand, how the bridge was built, how it works, how the engines worked, etc. You can zip through or take your time, its up to you. Mostly indoor save a walk to the engine room. You can buy a ticket for this and the monument to the fire of... More

Even if you do not enter it to see the Victorian engines who used to lift the bridge, it is quite an attraction on the outside. Walking on it, beautiful views can be seen, and the whole experience is fantastic.

Part front the science the views are great, cpl of little talks given, loads of quite interesting facts about other famous bridges and then my favourite part the glass bridge, my... More

Great experience for low money. Nice exihition with films, images and a great view. Use the TB App and see how the bridge will open under your feet. It is an attraction for the whole family.

My partner & I took the tower bridge walkway experience on a recent visit to London. We really enjoyed walking across the glass floor and took lots of pictures of the views. I now see how fantastic it would be to actually be standing on the glass floor when the bridge opens. We thought the £9 entry fee was reasonable.... More
