Very good value for money, paid £1.50 extra to include a trip up The Monument. Spectacular views of the city, very informative and historical. Amazing to see the structure from a different perspective. Includes a visit to the engine rooms, very interesting. Don't worry if your scared of heights like we are, felt totally safe and secure as all enclosed!... More

You cannot visit London and not see tower bridge. Interesting to see and its a in an area with some great dining and beside the Tower of London so you can spend a good part of the day exploring nearby.

This is my favorite place in London. I could spend hours just walking on it. They also have a small museum attached to one of the pillars.

This famous landmark was well worth the entry. Displays and films cue you in to the amazing history of London's fanciest bridge and the art exhibits and countdown of the world's most unique bridges is truly fascinating. If you are a penny presser, don't forget to come equipped with change as none is available inside. The attraction is equipped with... More

A chance to see behind the scenes of this unique bridge over the Thames. A lift takes you to the "bridge walk" height where a short video of its inception is shown. Then a walk across the uppermost eastern span taking in the sights on the that side of the bridge. Then across the southern tower where there is another... More

One of London's most famous landmarks, well worth a visit inside to learn about the history and how it functions. Good views from the walkway above

You will have seen the Tower Bridge on TV or Film ('Spice World'!) before, but it's even more impressive in reality. It's also in a nice area, obviously by the river, and near the Tower or London, so you can easily spend a good amount of time there and walk around and take in the many sites.

No trip is complete without a tour of this famous and technically amazing bridge. Climb up the stairs (a lot) and walk across the bridge for best views. If you're lucky (as we were), you might see it open so a boat can pass under. Be sure to check out the engine room below ground.
