“Tower Bridge prior to 2012 Olympics”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

I had always wanted to actually see the Tower Bridge of London and I finally got my wish and it was better than anticipated. I saw it just prior to the 2012 Olympics and they had the Olympic rings ready to drop down, once the Olympics started. Fantastic!!!

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Always wondered what it was like to be on top of the bridge so decided to pay the £8.00 adult fare, cheaper for the old man £5.60. Just paid for the bridge not the Monument as well maybe next time go there. A couple of very short films to watch informing you about how they built the bridge, walking along the top which was closed in but had little windows you could open to hang your camera out off was great, (no mucky windows)
Also a very well stocked shop, Look out for vouchers giving you £2.00 off in the shop.

“Lost my money”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Be very careful buying a ticket through this app. I accidentally entered not valid email address and didn't get the electronic ticket. App doesn't remember anything about the purchase and Tower bridge crew can't check booked tickets by your name.
Seller provides support only by phone which is expensive in roaming, so I just purchased the tickets again right on the bridge. Tickets cost the same price as via app and there was no queue at all.

If you are reasonably fit, take a trip up the Bridge on a clear day and marvel at the views. Learn more of the intricacies of the workings of this extraordinary bridge. Well worth the trip, especially if combined with a visit to the Tower and a trip on the river.

The sight of london bridge itself makes you go amazed. The blue color looks magnificent and lovely. It looks cuter from far off and looks wonderful when you are actually on it walking. Loved the feeling of being in London.
