The engine room with beautiful steam engines and giant cogwheels was stunning. It was also rewarding to learn how the bridge works. Although I have already forgot it all.

My husband and I went to London to celebrate our wedding anniversary so while we were there we decided to go to the Tower of London to see the poppies and the Crown Jewels and also Tower Bridge. What an experience walking on the glass floor and looking down into the Thames! I have a connection with Tower Bridge as... More

Having seen the new Glass Walkway at Tower Bridge being opened and promoted on BBC news, it was the selling point in finally visiting this iconic London landmark. We booked our tickets online a few days in advance of our visit;we had to specify which day we wanted to visit, but were not restricted to a set time. We chose... More

Went to the Tower of London to see the poppies and whilst there we were fortunate enough to see the bridge open for a large ship. Well worth seeing

This is a cheap and value for money attraction. Even cheaper if you get the train into London as it will then be 2for1. I went to the attraction before someone dropped a glass bottle on the glass walkway, it was amazing. I was in a party of nine, the oldest 71 the youngest 12 years and we all enjoyed.... More

This is the bridge that America thought it had bought, when in fact they purchased the old London Bridge. There is obviously no way this iconic bridge will ever be sold. The best viewing point to see the bridge in it's entirety is from London Bridge, where the photo can also include HMS Belfast and the Tower of London. It... More

The time in London was a good one. I did a lot of activities, I went to the tower of London, Buckingham palace, Hyde park and the Camden Angel Comedy club. But the thing that I want to share with you is one of my running sessions in London. Running in London is very difficult I experienced but it can... More

The Tower Bridge makes for a lovely walk in London, and is undoubtedly the most elaborate and gorgeous bridge there.

You think England, and you think Tower Bridge. It's iconic, it's majestic, it's stunning. I was lucky enough to have a magnificent view of this beauty from my hotel room. Next time, I'm walking over the new glass floor. Do not miss this bridge.
