Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge Road, London SE1 2UP, United Kingdom

Tower Bridge is one of the most beautiful bridges in the world, and one of the most recognizable London icons. Built over 120 years ago, it is not only a beautiful piece of architecture, it is also a complex engineering construction.

Tower Bridge is located not too far from The Tower of London, and if you are wondering about the best angle for Tower Bridge photos, it will be from the embankment next to the Tower of London (you don't need to purchase Tower tickets for that, just go from the Tower Visitor's Center in the direction of the river Thames, and the bridge will be on the left).

If you would like to learn more about the bridge, and get inside of it, Tower Bridge has a popular Tower Bridge Exhibition. You go up 42m above the river Thames and can enjoy fantastic views of London. There is a glass walkaway and you can even see what's going on on the bridge. You can try and plan your visit in such a way that you are there when the bridge is lifted. The lift times are listed on the Tower Bridge Exhibition website, but arrive early for additional security checks and possible long lines.

To learn more about the Tower Bridge Exhibition, opening hours, and to buy tickets online, please visit Tower Bridge Exhibition website.
