This was good and the kids enjoyed. On our London Pass so no extra cost. The crowd was big, arrived just behind a tour group so climbed the stairs - a hard climb. A little crowded but the highlight was seeing the bridge open while we were there

We visited this as we had a London pass- if I'd paid directly for this attraction I would have been very disappointed. Basically a view of London from a bit of a height, but there are better in the city. Contrived exhibitions just to make it seem like you're seeing something.

Having grown up watching this landmark on TV, It was a must see when visiting London, so I did. You can cross it easily by foot on both sides, and you may visit. If you want to eat something in the area with great view, try the hot dog / hamburgers caravans near the Starbucks, they are great!

The engineering behind the bridge is the reason why we went there. But, what we got in the bargain was a super-duper tour of the bridge. It has some great exhibits and one of the best views of the Thames waterfront. A must do.

We arrived late in thr afternoon and there was no line. We were able to use our handy dandy London pass. The first part of the tour was a little Kitschy . The introduction of the architect and the story of the bridge is entertaining. Even my teenage niece and nephew were amused. The rest of the tour was a... More

Excellent. You can either leg it up the stairs ( not for the unfit ) or take the lift. The stairs are more interesting, you get to see some of the inner bits, also there are toilets which is always handy if you're doing a bit of exploring / tourist stuff. The short film is about right, does not drag... More

We didn't have time to actually go up and walk across Tower Bridge but it would have been really awesome to do that and I would highly recommend factoring in time if you can! We had to be content with walking across but it was fantastic! The structure is amazing in itself and we had the added bonus of a... More

As far as the nursery rhyme goes, this is NOT London Bridge. I did not have time to stop and explore this bridge, just a quick drive by. But it's my favorite of them all as it's more ornate then the rest. Best to visit in the morning.
