There is a lot to be gained from this visit but it is quite expensive if you just rush through it so consider this if taking children. Tickets are £9.00 but there is a small discount if you pre buy on line. This also allows you to skip the ticket queue once you are inside the entrance hall. The first... More

Beautiful! If you have the time, go visit this attraction. Lots to see and do around this area. Our hotel was just down the street. Crossed this bridge a few times, fantastic views.

You have to take this in as it is one of the things we all thing of when you think of London. Easy to get to and right next to the tower of London.

The bridge experience was very interesting and the glass floors were so much fun! You can either walk to the top or get the lift up. Lots of interesting information on unique bridges all around the world. Worth a visit if you have extra time up your sleeve!

loved seeing the tower, river, sites of London from the height of the bridge. Also had fun walking on the glass, looking down on the river. It is a beautiful piece of London fun! lots of tourists to mill through, but still worth the visit!

This is a must do for a once in a lifetime visit to a landmark that is known the world over and a signature landmark of the Capital. Admission is on the north side tower of the river and costs £8,though you can get London day passes that cover a host of other attractions like the Tower of London &... More

I first visited about ten years ago which was fantastic. I went with the same expectation and was very disappointed. Very little information about the building, lots of information about other bridges in the world, no information about the other parts of the building like the morgue, or how it was constructed etc apart from a short animation.

Never knew that Tower Bridge had such an entertaining history. This tour does it justice. And the view from the glass floor is breath-taking.

We visited the Tower Bridge Exhibition with our London Pass, and it was quite an informing experience, not to mention, fun as well! You can learn about its history, all the bridges around the world, and (for the brave ones) walk on a glass panel where you can see the sea and cars rolling by- under your feet. Staff are... More

The bridge is iconic and not to be missed. If you are not afraid of heights then include the "Experience". Go up to the top and walk across, beware, the floor is glass and not for the faint of heart! I edged along the side but my daughter walked right down the middle. You get great views up and down... More
