On The London Pass so fast-tracked entry which was excellent due to the masses of French students waiting to get in. I found the walk up invigorating, though others may struggle (lift can be asked for). Excellent view along the Thames and over London. The Old Man certainly enjoyed the Engine Room, too.

Not to be confused with London Bridge, this wonderful bridge is resplendent with the Queen's blue paint. Such a pretty backdrop for photos, both on the bridge and from the river banks with the bridge in the background. It's an easy walk across it, and the view is worth it.

It was very rainy and windy the day we climbed the tower bridge. The most memorable part of the experience was the glass floor that allows to you see all the way down on the traffic of the bridge. I also enjoyed the animation showing the building of the bridge over time. Worth a visit! Also make sure you take... More

I don’t know how many bridges like this exist in this world, but I guess this one is the most spectacular one with it´ s two towers on each side. We just arrived at time, when they lifted up the middle part of the bridge, so this huge ship could pass. I was a bit surprised if we were just... More

We got a brilliant view of the Tower Bridge from the pier, as well as from the City cruise boat tour. Didn't get to actually visit the bridge, but make sure you at least get to view the bridge. It's the most beautiful one of all of them.

This was the first time we had done the "experience" which takes you thru the workings of the bridge up to the top of the bridge to the walkway. It was interesting to see all the workings and there was a video explaining how the bridge was built etc. On the walkway at the top they have put in glass... More

This was actually more interesting than I thought it would be. Good info about the bridge, its design and construction but also about bridges in general - some really impressive constructions to find out about. The glass walkway is really good too. If you walk from the engine rooms to the South side of the river, there are lots of... More

At £9 (and we got 2 for 1 tickets through London Midland Trains) this is decent value. Interesting information about the technology associated with the bridge, and the glass floor is fab especially for kids. And nearby are great eateries and coffee houses nestling in the old warehouses.
