As a half term treat I took my 10 year old granddaughter to visit Tower Bridge. I had seen on the website that there was a draw lift at 12.30 and decided to view the opening of the bridge from the riverside rather than from the glass floor on the upper walkways. Nice photos were taken and we even saw... More

Many people say this is not just the most famous bridge in the world, but the most beautiful, so to get inside it and walk along the overhead walkways is absolutely brilliant. There are fantastic views of the Thames along to St Paul's and Big Ben, and perfect views of the City and Canary Wharf's amazing tower blocks, as well... More

Took this inexpensive tour with my partner. Got a 2 for 1 using a voucher/rail promotion. Great views with a good 10 minute pre tour information video. Didn't have time to visit the engine room as attraction was closing just as we left. Got lucky and saw a ship go under the bridge, make sure you ask at the info... More

Beautiful day with lovely views of the Tower Bridge and we even got to see the bridge raised and lowered. The best views and photos were from when we were visiting the Tower of London.

I visited with my 10 year old daughter and we thought it was great. Entry was around £13 for the both of us which felt quite reasonable for central London. We took the stairs and found the short film informative. The highlight for us was being over the glass walkway when the bridge opened to allow a boat through. The... More

One adult and one child £14.10 during half term. No doubt I could have got an offer somehow but we just turned up whilst in London - it was the same price as booking online the day before. The attraction was interesting - lots of facts about the building and working of the bridge. The main attraction to the children... More

This was a nice one to do with our girls, aged 5 & 10. Take the stairs, views are better. The children had passports and had to collect stickers at different points. This appealed to them and gave us more time to look at all the information boards for ourselves. Views of London were super, and the glass floor a... More

Great bridge with awesome views of Tower. It is still a functional drawbridge. It is the most iconic bridge in London, so take a walk, and if you get cold, there is a Starbuck cafe at the end of it, on the Tower side, which is great for people watching

A must see for all who visit London. Please do not dedicate too much time to tower bridge as it is beautiful but your tour and your walk across can be over in a matter of minutes. Incorporate the Tower of London and tower bridge in the same tour, and this would make your experience much better. Please see my... More

a must see during a London visit. an impressive view on the walkway down to the River Thames, the Tower and a lot of other outstanding sites. And: the historical macine rooms are a visit worth for technical interrested people.
