Everyone sees this bridge in postcards, movies etc but until you've seen it in person and walked across it you won't appreciate its beauty. It's not a long bridge to cross and from the distance it looks huge, but when you get near it it's a lot smaller yet still such a grand structure. Definitely recommend a visit if you... More

Great views of the city but didn't think the tour was worth the time. For a first time visitor, I would recommend it, but I probably wouldn't visit again.

Views were great and the glass floors work really well. Shame that the detail on the history and working of the bridge has been sidelined but as a viewing gallery was great. Very reasonable price compared to other London experiences.

One of my best spots in London. When I was a student, back in the 90´s I used to bike around London thru the Tower Bridge.

You could really spend as much or as little time in Tower Bridge as you want to. They have plenty of information including history of famous bridges from around the world. They also show how the bridge opens and closes and you get a chance to view all the mechanics. The best part, though, is being able to walk over... More

This iconic London landmark has got it all, incredible history that keeps up with today's modernity ie. it's new glass floor on the upper walkway structure (accessed via lifts) with even parties &/or even holding wedding ceremonies. It is an interesting visit for kids as well as Mum And Dad. There are engineering tours to learn how the majestic Victorian... More

I have always wanted to climb through the towers and cross Tower bridge and now I have with my wife and three children, we thoroughly enjoyed it! If you are feeling fit take advantage of the monument upgrade at a small cost. As for the tower and glass walkway - superb!

The entrance to the Tower Bridge Experience is closer to the Tower of London side of the Bridge. We visited the Monument first, and purchased combined tickets for £10.50 and bypassed the lines waiting to purchase tickets at the Bridge. You can take the stairs but we'd just claimed 311 steps to the top of the monument so we took... More

Expected to have to,join a queue (I thought that we needed to.book) but no, just went I and was so,surprised, a lovely experience, mostly the views, but they had an exhibition of photos on display, plus you get to go down into the 'workings' brilliant.
