We hadn't planned to visit Tower Bridge, but we had some time to kill, and I had always wanted to have a look round. We knew that the western walkway would be closed. The box office is quite small, and fortunately we did not have to wait very long. The film show at the top of the north tower was... More

I may be biased being a Londoner but I think this is the most beautiful bridge in the world. The Gothic architecture is breathtaking and I was lucky enough on one occasion to witness it opening up, amazing! A lot of people don't realise that for a fee you can go inside and see the mechanics of the bridge and... More

This is definitely one of those attractions that you 'do to say you've done it'. If you aren't planning on doing anything else in the area it really is a bit of a let down. We caught the tube into Tower Hill, the area is nice enough, places to eat, nice greenery and the bridge itself is certainly different, a... More

I was taken here for my birthday by my parents, we had booked in advance so went straight in and was taken up in the lift. The people working were really friendly and enthusiastic, especially the man in the end room talking about mayors? - made a joke about Boris Johnson! Was a really interesting experience especially to see all... More

One of my favourite places in London. I took lime 500 photos here. It is a must see during your stay in this city, its better to go at night when fhe bridge is lighted

Didn't do the tour or anything like that (not our 'cup of tea'). Didn't pay anything or anywhere. To visit the bridge itself, it's free. And it's lovely. Great architecture and engineering marvel just walking around on it. It was a 'check the box' moment to visit, but worth it as the views on the bridge are wonderful. (I do... More

When most see this bridge, they think London Bridge, but that bridge is pretty mundane. The Tower Bridge is gorgeously medieval looking and is a perfect backdrop to the Tower of London. We did not take the tour in the bridge but we did go across and walk along the Thames on a beautiful sunny day that made the colorful... More

We visited on the 120th anniversary so it was very busy. it also only cost £1.20 on this day, I don't think I would pay full price.There are lifts go get up to all the levels, which is important for us as we had a double buggy with us. Also in the lift you get told extra information that you... More
