This one of the visits we and especially our kids enjoyed. The fee is relatively fair (20 £ for a family with two kids). You should take the stairs instead of the elevator to get a good impression of the steel construction. Don't miss the machine room at the end of the exhibition.

This bridge is one of the best working bridges in the world. It still opens up at least once a day with traffic lights on the river for the boats and on the bridge for traffic and safety gates to stop everything passing through while the bridge opens. It has opened its bridge for even war ships and high sail... More

I attended a private party where we had catering for the night & we were there as the sun set gloriously so we got day & night views also. What unsurpassable views.

If you don't mind heights you get a fantastic view of the city and would save a trip on the London eye. You also can view the two glass platforms that give you a view directly down onto the bridge. Awesome if you walk directly onto the glass. I don't like heights but found plenty of room on the side... More

The exhibition inside the tower shows a lot of information and pictures on the history and technology. It is such tremendous strength of Great British in 19 century. Take a beautiful picture outside the tower. You can walk along the river then go to borough market to get some food in 30 minutes.

Amazing bridge structure. It was nice walking along the walking path towards the bridge seeing it come up closer and closer and finally walking across it to the Tower of London. Definitely should not be missed as a popular tourist thing. Did not get a chance to go up in the bridge.

We did a walk up to get in - no problem - also lucky to strike a day with very few people so we were able to take our time. Great views. Impressive architecture. Very impressive engineering. Don't forget the underground part after you've been through the bridge itself - shows the workings of the bridge. The whole thing is... More

The tower bridge was the best thing I enjoyed in London. It is a masterpiece of architecture on the Thames and harbors a lot of history in every brick. I repeated my visit during my stay as I could not get enough of it.

This is not your average glossy london tourist attraction but to me that's what makes it special. The inside of the tower maintains it's ornate victorian industrial structure - it's slightly shabby which makes it feel so genuine - and you can imagine the late 19th century visitors taking the same spiral stairs. For this reason - don't take the... More
