We have all looked at Tower Bridge but I recommend the Tower Bridge Exhibition going inside the Bridge, climbing the steps up to the walkway and seeing the glass floor that allows you to gaze down to the road and river from about 42 metres. There are guides,Tv displays and very informative travelog info provided throughout the experience. The climb... More

My wife and I went for a visit and thought this would be a cool thing to do. Nice for a feather in the cap, but not awe inspiring.

I come to London very often and always usually pass Tower Bridge, but had never been in it. But last year I did the Tower Bridge experience which was excellent.. The displays were very good and little films very interesting. Great experience! :)

My 10 year old daughter was on her first visit to the capital. One of her best memories is going to be walking over the iconic Tower Bridge. It has to be the most photographed bridge in England and never fails to impress me. The old engine rooms are definitely worth visiting and you will learn some amazing history if... More

Me and my wife visited Tower bridge during our anniversary trip to Europe. Even though it was raining in London, when is it not. We had to go see Tower Bridge, it gives you a great view of the city and the beautiful castle near the bridge, you just feel like youre in the heart of London when your there.

So, Tower Bridge is an iconic landmark in London, which means that it is worth stopping by for a photo. However, it, like many bridges, serves more of a functional purpose than an entertainment one. Regardless, it's worth stopping by if you have some time to burn.

We took our photos of the Tower Bridge outside of London Tower. One of the famous London sights, it's blue cables show beautifully on a clear day.

This is one of the most used shots for anything about London. I was very surprised as it looked smaller for some reason. This is also so close to Trafalgar Square, literally around the corner 2 mins away walking. On walking underneath it and looking up the towers look amazing but still has the effect of being smaller than it... More

Not for those that have a fear of heights, but I enjoyed it so much, the view, the history and all the insides outs that you could appreciate!

A really nice surprise on the visit to London to find tower bridge open to the public with an exhibition as well for a really good entrance fee. Worth every penny to walk over the bridge with the glass floor and a visit to the well kept engine room.
