It was a great experience. We really enjoyed the view. You can see Tower of London just right next to it. Great!

Give yourself time to really appreciate its beauty, even with the onslaught of tourists its worth the time to take a deep breath and really take in the scope of the bridge.

Forget the hideous London bridge and make sure you stop in and see this one. Truly spectacular and has some great photos. If your tight for cash just walk across it and look at it from either side. If not do the tour it is good and never listen to a whining Pom say it cost to much,they whine about... More

What an amazing bridge. I had seen it on movies and things but seeing it light up at night for myself gave me a real buzz! I say, if you are in London - go see it.

Yes, the iconic bridge that identifies London (most people confuse and call it London Bridge). Yoy can enjoy the architecture from a river cruise or trip, walking along the river bank, from London Tower or a stroll on it. It is beautiful day or night when the colours come on. If you visit London Tower, make sure you walk the... More

Very interesting going up inside Tower Bridge, seeing how the bridge was constructed and used to operate (you see the old engine rooms), seeing how it compares with other bridges built worldwide, and walking on the glass floor and looking down on the traffic and Thames below. For an extra 90p you can get a combined ticket which includes going... More

An excellent attraction, so glad we made the effort to go. Starting off in an elevator up, you next watch a small movie explaining the history to the bridge. Then you get to walk around the upper part of the bridge itself, which is well cool. This now boasts the glass floor that you can peer down through, which is... More

Tower Bridge=London=Tower Bridge. Bridge is London's identity. The Bridge on river Thames gives mesmerizing view of what the city is. The view of this part of London satisfy you to be in the city, any time of the day/night. I was lucky to witness the Bridge in motion twice :)

Can you do it? Can you really do it? Walk on a sheet of glass at the Tower Bridge Exhibition at the top of Tower Bridge looking down at the cars driving far below you and the waters of the Thames rushing by even further below? It's a rush but it's FANTASTIC! My daughter laid down on the glass for... More

Overpriced and with a truly embarrassing film that wobbles on the screen as part of the tour, this is not a shining example of how to add value to a national landmark. In fact the displays and staging are generally poor and make me embarrassed to be British considering the price charged. However the bridge itself is impressive and interesting... More
