Another fab icon ofLondon. We visited the Tower Bridge Exhibit on 28 Feb 15 straight after seeing The Tower of London. We bought the combined ticket for Tower Bridge and the Monument which was very reasonable given London's elevated prices. With a choice of lift or stairs, naturally we decided to get some 'free phys' and opted for the stairs.... More

The bridge is just a bridge. Maybe that is true for some people but if you use your imagination you can step back in time.

Tower Bridge is an iconic symbol of London and a short walk from The Tower of London. After spending a day at The Tower we didn't have time to do the tour and exhibition at Tower Bridge but instead decided to walk across the bridge and take in the view up the Thames and that was really worthwhile. On the... More

A drizzly morning in February is a good time to visit as there are no queues. We used the Days Out Guide 2for1 offer with our rail tickets to get in half price. A good audio visual show gives you an insight into the building of the bridge and how it works. The last part of the tour lets you... More

Visited the Tower of London While vacationing in England. Took a tour of the grounds and learned a lot about the rich history. If you enjoy learning and are interested in history, this is a stop that you need on your itinerary. The view is pretty spectacular, too!

For just £9 for an adult the ticket gets you up to the elevated walkways and an immersive experience inside the most famous bridge in the world. The views are fantastic - make sure you go on the east and west walkways to see all of London. The glass floors, looking down 150 ft/ 50m to the river below are... More

If someone asks me what truly stands out as a landmark in London I would say it's 'Tower Bridge' without any hesitation...The bridge which was built in 19th Century is truly massive and very beautiful...I have walked multiple times on the bridge and am amaze every single time by the rich architecture of the bridge...none of friends believed that the...

The walkways are covered with information about OTHER bridges, which is not what I paid to come here and see. The engine rooms have information pitched at a primary-school/American intelligence level, and were entirely insufficient to actually learn anything useful, informative, or interesting. More data about horse power, capacity, numbers, explanations... Would have earned more stars.
