It was my first trip to London and I couldn't have been more awed by the tower bridge. It was raining when we went there but the view was breathtaking. I must say that I saw it at night with all the lightings on and it looked so beautiful. I definitely want to come back here again.

One of the most iconic structures in UK. Looks more beautiful at night with the lightings on. The cruise experience was wonderful too.

blasted by the wind, but oh boy, what views! Behind Canary Wharf, in front the Tower of London, the gherkin, the cheese grater, the block and all the Thames waterfront laid out before us. And wonderful sunshine too!

The perspectives structure the top are extraordinary, there is some fair data on the history and mechanics of the scaffold. The mandatory glass floor is flawless. General worth the visit and charge. One of the must do traveler things. Was completely debilitated to mix up this one for the London span. Anyhow then its such a n structural engineering, to... More

I didn't enter the tower. I took a lot of photo. Very beautiful. especially the light on it. But for better view, you have to keep the distance.

The day before we went up The Shard and as we had a couple of hours to kill (and a discount voucher) before our train home we thought we'd have a look and compare the two attractions, at £4.50 with our Days Out In London voucher it was probably better value for money, still brilliant views although obviously not 360degrees....

Really enjoyed the tour and particularly the tour guides. They were knowledgeable but the added humour and wit made it all the more fun. Furthermore number of tours on certain routes dropped dramatically towards the end of the day with no tour guide on the blue route. The river cruise could have been longer. But a good day overall.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this attraction. Very well organised, great historical facts presented very well. Top walkway is brilliant especially the glass floor. Great to watch people appear very worried about falling through! Views are amazing. We went on a very sunny day which added to the fun. Fascinating insight into the workings of possibly the most famous... More

Got a shock to see this bridge parallel to London bridge. Was totally disheartened to mistake this one for the London bridge. But then it's such a n architecture that you for get the disappointment of being on the actual London bridge as you make your way towards this wonderful bridge. And get the feel of grandness in all.

One of the must do tourist things. The views form the top are great, there is some decent information on the history and mechanics of the bridge. The obligatory glass floor is neat. Overall worth the visit and fee.
