The bridge itself is an engineering feat. All the machinery os there on show. The view from the upper walkway is simply spectacular. I found that the best way to visit the sites in London is by having The London Pass. This saves time and money You don't pay for most of the sites and also you jump the queue.

This attraction is not expensive and it caters for all ages. Once you are let out of the lift, the time is your own, Which is good as you can take your time and no one is rushing you. The glass floor is great, that being said I could not walk over it, as you are so high up. It... More

Amazing bridge and lovely tour. This tour allows you to see how the Tower Bridge was built, see the bridge from the inside, and how it operates. Not a extremely lengthy tour, but very informative and worth doing. Of course the tickets are a little overpriced, but so is nearly every other tourist attraction in London. I throughly enjoyed this... More

A London icon for a reason. This bridge is breathtakingly gorgeous. You can get some really good photo views of it from the Tower of London or an obligatory cruise along the Thames.

I have always been meaning to visit the Bridge but there is so much to do in London, this time I was determined not to miss it and I'm glad I didn't. The old Victorian engine's and a walk along the glass floor makes me wonder why it did take so long, and it was not expensive, you can also... More

Everyone sees this bridge in postcards, movies etc but until you've seen it in person and walked across it you won't appreciate its beauty. It's not a long bridge to cross and from the distance it looks huge, but when you get near it it's a lot smaller yet still such a grand structure. Definitely recommend a visit if you... More

Great views of the city but didn't think the tour was worth the time. For a first time visitor, I would recommend it, but I probably wouldn't visit again.

Views were great and the glass floors work really well. Shame that the detail on the history and working of the bridge has been sidelined but as a viewing gallery was great. Very reasonable price compared to other London experiences.

One of my best spots in London. When I was a student, back in the 90´s I used to bike around London thru the Tower Bridge.
