My vision of London and what most associate with the thought of London Bridge (wrongly). Beautiful bridge, gorgeouse architecture, really a must see when in London. You can take a tub to tower bridged stop and it's a short walk from there. I would suggest doing the tower castle tour while your there.

This is one of those places that you plan on going but you don't actually write onto your list of places you know? That being said it is a very nice walk. It's a fantastic view!

loved seeing this bridge, a long walk from my hostel by it was worth it, it looks beautiful and has nice views from it, its right next to the tower of London which is a bonus.

This beautiful bridge is the place of a nice visit where you can know the details about how this bridge was built and how it used to work from its beginning. The engine rooms are very well preserved and you can see all the systems very closely.

This was another must see place as part of our 6-day London Pass and walked to it just after our 3 hour visit of the Tower of London. We got in and waited for our elevator ride up. Once up, both sides have splendid views as you walk along. Note that there are a few openings along the window where... More

Lines for this were fairly short, even in the summer. This was included in our London Pass so we did not have to pay separate admission. We entered the ticket office without having to wait, got our tickets and waited <10 minutes for the elevator ride to the top of the first tower. We saw a brief video narration about... More

A former colleague held his retirement party here a couple of weeks back. The walkway is accessed by lift and provides a wonderful backdrop for an evening event. You can hire one or both sides of the bridge. The space is clearly long and narrow but was a superb location.

Go visit this place at least to see the view from the top. If you like mechanical things and engines, then more to see. A collection of pictures with all sorts of bridges is shown upstairs

Walked to the bridge and did the tour. The weather was cold and rainy(shocking) and it was great to be indoors. The pictures of the city from the bridge are the best photo moments of London. The tour is very nice, you can spend a lot of time just viewing the sights over the Thames River.
