It was school holidays but we still had short queses may 5 minutes. You get a lift tothe top and have a short movie or sound and light show. Then you have as much time as you want to roam the two cover walkways on both sides of the bridge with excellent views up and down the Thames. After that... More

Well, it's just iconic, isn't it? Don't miss it, go up the bridge, you will earn a great view of London, and learn about the bridge itself, if you are lucky - you will even see the bridge rises! It is included in London 2FOR1 so you can buy 2 tickets in the price of 1. Much recommended attraction.

If you just want to see the whole tower bridge, then there is no need to go up there. The exhibition there is not that rich but interesting and worthy to see if you use 2 for 1 voucher. Suggest to go there in the morning and sunny day because you can see the shard, city hall on the bright... More

I did not pay for the entrance to the tower bridge as the external look of it is fascinating enough. Take a stroll by the riverside of the bridge whether with your loved ones or your friends, it was a wonderful experience as the tower bridge is really beautiful, especially during the night time. I personally went with my friends... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here just in awe of it being such an iconic landmark. It is really interesting and its construction close up is amazing. Wonderful views and watching the river traffic was great. Highly recommended.

I went with a 6 year old who was getting tired by that stage in the day, and we still enjoyed this. The films are good, the exhibition was interesting, and the engine room was great, with a few 'hands on' displays which children and adults were enjoying. There is a 'sticker hunt' trail for the kids too. To cap... More

I'd walked across Tower Bridge many times without thinking about paying to enter the exhibition but on a recent trip, with time on our hands, my family and I decided to try it. We're all very glad we did as it turned out to be a fascinating and informative experience detailing not just the history of the building of this... More

The iconic Tower Bridge must be one of the world's most recognisable sights. Do not miss it if you visit London, I have taken countless friends and relatives to enjoy this attraction! You will never forget it whether you see it by day or night (when it is now stunningly lit). It's free to enjoy unless you want to climb... More

I am amazed and confused as to how somebody could give this London landmark one star as being terrible. Tower bridge is an iconic landmark not just for this generation but for years gone by. Every night I drive over it, there are countless thousands posing and taking photographs of themselves and it, to recount their memories of this great... More
