While enjoying the breath taking view along the promanade, beware of pick pockets theives acted as a couple follow you closely and open back packs that you are carrying. If you discovered, they say they want to warn you about the zip was open. Watch out!

If you go to visti the Tower bridge you will never regret your choice. We went there and were so lucky that the day was sunny enough to allow us to take wonderful pictures of the panorama. Skycrapers, river.. all clearly visible and enhanced by the shining light of the sun. What's more we visited the exposition inside the bridge... More

We walked over the bridge after visiting the tower. It's a cool bridge and the kids recognized it from Harry Potter. We went over on one side and back in the other.

What is a visit to London without a visit to Tower Bridge. This lovely bridge is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Take the time if you can to walk over the bridge and you will see just how huge this magnificent attraction is.

This famous landmark is one of the greatest engineering marvels of its age and was built in 1894 for ships to pass through. Very often, it is mistaken for London Bridge, which is the next bridge upstream. Tower Bridge contains two massive towers that are linked together. Its middle part can be lifted up when huge ships pass through that... More

Great visit with my two late teenage sons. Walked the 206 steps to the bridge. Great glass floor so you can take photos and walk across seeing the river below. Some short films giving the history of the bridge. You then go the steam pump rooms and see how all the mechanisms work. Good value and a bit different -... More
