      An unmissable place within the area of ​​the city of London. Crossing the bridge can be done for free, although you must pay a fee to climb the towers.

      London Tower Bridge is an iconic symbol of the city and a remarkable feat of engineering. This iconic bascule and suspension bridge spans the River Thames, connecting the Tower of London on the north bank to the Greater London area on the south bank. Its distinctive twin towers and intricate design make it a must-see landmark for both locals and tourists.Visiting the Tower Bridge offers a captivating experience. The exhibition within the bridge's high-level walkways provides historical insights into its construction and operation. The panoramic views of the city from these walkways are truly breathtaking, allowing you to appreciate London's skyline and its numerous landmarks.One of the most exciting aspects of Tower Bridge is its operation. If you're lucky, you might witness the bridge raising to allow taller vessels to pass through, which is a fascinating sight in itself.The surrounding area also has plenty to offer, including riverside walks, nearby attractions like the Tower of London, and a vibrant atmosphere. Keep in mind that Tower Bridge can get quite crowded, especially during peak tourist seasons, so planning your visit during off-peak times might lead to a more enjoyable experience.In summary, London Tower Bridge is not only an architectural marvel but also a symbol of London's rich history and connection to the River Thames. Exploring its walkways, learning about its history, and admiring its engineering prowess make for an unforgettable experience in the heart of the city.

      On a pleasant weather day, it is lovely to walk across the bridge while taking pictures with different views of the bridge. Despite little crowd, it was easy to walk with family and take desired pics. Wouldn't really recommend buying tickets for the additional features and climb on the top. Views from the road bridge level itself are great.

      I had a fantastic visit to London Bridge! The surroundings were truly beautiful, with the iconic River Thames flowing beneath and stunning architecture all around. I was lucky enough to witness the bridge opening, which was a remarkable experience. The only downside was that it was quite crowded, but the vibrant atmosphere and the sight of the bridge more than made up for it. Definitely worth a visit for the history and charm it offers!

      Don't ever confuse Tower Bridge with London Bridge, even though they're situated near each other. This iconic structure is known as Tower Bridge, and it's an absolute must-see when in London.The stunning view from the bridge is something that will capture the interest of anyone, especially for Indians, given its frequent appearance in regional movies from around the world. This lends it a nostalgic charm that can be appreciated even without a deep understanding of its historical significance.Tower Bridge, completed in 1894, represents a marvel of engineering. Its unique suspension design not only serves a functional purpose but also adds to London's rich architectural heritage.When I visited (midweek), I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite the crowds, it was still easy to explore. I was able to move around freely, enjoying the view from all angles.The architecture, the atmosphere, and the unique experience of walking across a piece of cinematic and historical legacy make Tower Bridge a memorable destination. Whether you're a history buff or just someone looking for a breathtaking view, this landmark, with its blend of functionality and artistry, is sure to leave you in awe.

      Practically the best of all (also great) London attractions. The bridge is beautiful AND functional. You can go right across it. There is also an option to pay to see from the top of the bridge and the mechanisms that open and close it. Yes, the bridge opens and it's really rewarding to catch this rare moment of a boat passing through the opened Tower Bridge. This location is 2 for 1 as Tower of London is right next to the bridge.

      The bridge is beautiful and emotes its history and the times in which it was created. The surrounding back drops and skylines make you appreciate everything that has happened since this bridge was built - and the changing society. It is great at night, with the lights on and all of the people and activities on the walkway along the river. It is a must see - day and night.

      A beautiful London landmark that I must have seen quite a few times, but only recently have actually visited it for a look inside. On our scheduled visit it was a little bit rainy, which in part meant that the queue wasn't that long. When you go in you head up the stairs till eventually you get up to the walkways. The walkways have lots of information about the bridge as well as some clear glass floors to look down at the world beneath. The ticket also allows entry into the engine room which is a short way from when you exit the bridge tower. I'm really pleased that we visited Tower Bridge but did feel that it could have been a bit more interactive in terms of the info - still 100% worth the visit though!

      Tower Bridge - nice, historical beautiful place! At the top, on both sides of the bridge, there are gaps in the floor with glass floors with a view of the river and people walking below, while the windows offer beautiful views of the city. For the family of three persons (1 adult + 2 children) we payed 22 pounds (in 2023.07.17) for this experience.

      Really spectacular views across river Thames. Be it cloudy or sunny, the views are gorgeous! The architecture, the landscape, it is just spectacular! The vibe is lively. You could see people running, folks playing music, performing fun acts in the walkways leading to various bridges. A must do if you're in London. Lots of good places to grab a bite nearby as well.

      A great experience in such a historic building. Some great views especially through the glass floor. If you have trouble climbing loads of stairs then please use the lift. Think this attraction is fantastic, especially bearing in mind the price of the ticket. I’d also suggest going on their website to order your tickets as there was a large queue waiting to purchase them. You can then go to the front of the queue in a special advanced ticket purchase queue.

      Lovely museum & tourist attraction split across two nearly locations - the bridge itself and the engibe room. Tells the history of Tower Bridge & those who built it really well. Great views from the walkway at the top plus a glass floor to look down on the road & river below. The steam engine room is really impressive & explains how the bridge was first powered. Well worth a visit whether you're visiting London or you're a resident.

      I am in love with London especially the tower bridge. It is spectacular and I am out of words to express its beauty.You can sit and watch the tower stand majestically during any time of the day or even at night. Its beauty never fades.

      Never miss a chance to spend good time around Thames with a great view of the Tower Bridge. You need to experience the place both in morning and night for a different experience. If you can - you can try a cruise experience in the evening to enjoy the night and have a great view of the city.

      This review is for the paid attraction to go to the top:Great view on one side. Tickets are much cheaper compared to other attractions, but that's not an excuse to throw in so many people into each batch. If the top was a bit less crowded, it would've been great.

      “Visiting Tower Bridge in London was an absolute delight! From the moment I set foot on this iconic landmark, I was captivated by its grandeur and historical significance. The majestic structure, with its towering towers and intricate Victorian architecture, truly exemplifies the architectural marvels of the past.As I strolled along the high-level walkways, I was treated to breathtaking panoramic views of the River Thames and the cityscape beyond. The glass floors added an exhilarating touch, allowing me to marvel at the bustling traffic passing below my feet. It was an experience that made me feel both connected to the city’s vibrant energy and humbled by its rich history.Inside the bridge’s exhibition, I was immersed in its fascinating story through interactive displays and informative exhibits. Learning about the construction and engineering feats behind Tower Bridge deepened my appreciation for this iconic landmark. The highlight, of course, was witnessing the bridge open up to let a passing ship through—an awe-inspiring moment that reminded me of its vital role in facilitating maritime trade.The staff at Tower Bridge were friendly and knowledgeable, always ready to answer questions and provide insights into its heritage. Their passion for the bridge’s legacy was evident, making the visit even more enjoyable.Overall, my visit to Tower Bridge was an unforgettable experience. It’s a must-see attraction for anyone visiting London, offering a perfect blend of history, architecture, and breathtaking views. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, an architecture lover, or simply seeking a memorable experience, Tower Bridge will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.”I hope you find this review helpful!

      An absolute classic icon… (sorry London Bridge ;). Always nice to stroll across and enjoy the views and architecture on both sides of the river and while on the bridge itself. You won’t have to wait too long to see an iconic red routemaster bus cross it as well. Certainly makes for an ideal “London” photo opportunity. For a nice view of the bridge, try crossing another one and enjoying the view.

      It’s a very nice touristic place.. there are restaurants near by where you can also enjoy the view.. we took a walk on the bridge. If you want to walk on the top where there see through glass there is a payment of either 13 or 20 pounds but the tower itself is closed you can just walk along the corridor from one side to the other. Walking down though is free and it’s a must see when you visit London

      Really neat tour with the history of not only the construction, but why the design is how it is. A couple of years ago the installed glass bottom panels in the two walkways that connect the tops of the bridge. This was cool to see and the view from up there is awesome. The tickets were very reasonable.

      Great place to visit. Of course this is an icon of London with interest history but also a very nice exposition. The raw information is presented with graphics or video which is super cool. The facts are presented in a friendly way without a museum description. The top view is great and this idea with sliding windows for photo is great. The service is nice and helpful. Great souvenir shop and part of the engine room. Me and my wife spent over an hour sightseeing and I think that this is a must have place for every tourist.

      Beautiful Tower Bridge and surrounding places.Unfortunately,we haven’t covered all in one day.I would like to recommend those who are preferring public transportation. Before visiting Tower Bridge must check about event on the day, public transportation such as bus route,train availability. We had taken a long walk with a child due to event on that day.We haven’t check online about the event.Surrounding the Tower bridge so many places to view and it was amazing.

      Firstly, although the staff were great at sorting me out when I didn't have a paper ticket and just one on my phone, it is not good that paper tickets are needed (and they printed mine out). In today's age and ecological crisis, paper should not be needed. They need to sort that.There is no wheelchair access that I could see. Lots of stairs both up and down so be aware! There's also not a huge amount to see in the towers themselves. Considering this is not a free attraction, I would expect more.Having said that, DO go to the engine rooms. That was excellent and informative. Well worth the trip.Overall, just about worth it for the price. Don't make it your big trip of the day though. It's fun but short.

      The beautiful tower bridge. (Tourists often confuse this to be the London bridge.)Well this is a bridge too, and check out the pictures to see how amazing it looks when a big ship passes and the bridge is open. This is one of a kind bridge. To know more about its construction do visit inside the tower bridge. It’s amazing to see vehicles crossing under you.Great tourist spot , walk the bridge to see it in detail. It’s a must do in London!

      The Tower Bridge. Now while there’s no cost to cross the bridge I would highly recommend purchasing tickets to go across up top. It’s well worth the steps. If you need to take a lift one is available but seeing the staircases, and all the factual, historical information they give you on the way up makes it all the more worth it.We bought tickets for 13.30 and arrived a bit early, and the staff didn’t mind us getting in the queue. It was a bit long but moved very quickly, again you could take the lift or the stairs we chose the stairs (we were told there’s somewhere around 260 of them). As you walk up the stairs there are posts and placards that tell you all sorts of facts regarding the material that went into the bridge and other fascinating details. The wood creaking stairs only adds to the experience. Once at the top there’s a spot to rest even before going to the upper bridges.You may think the entire upper bridge is “glass bottom” it isn’t, but each side does have a small section where if not to crowded you can even lie down and take a photo. You’ll walk all the way across one, down the other and turn around where then you can decide you next move.Once down the stairs they send you off to the Engine Room which is also included and the gift shop. This alone has been such a worth while part of our visit, I would highly recommend it.

      Awesome iconic structure we did the tour which is highly recommended where you get to go to the top of the bridge and look down on the Thames though the glass panels not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights mind as it's a hell of a long way up!The whole area around the bridge is really cool too lots of great bars etc especially recommend going in the Vault a pub/cafe underneath the bridge which looks directly over the river which the barmaid explained used to be the coal storage room for obviously when the bridge was still stream powered.Stayed in a premier inn which is in tower hill just a couple of hundred yards down the road, second time we've stayed there and definitely will do again as it's so ideally situated. Great area.

      This is a most iconic bridge in London. It is a beautiful history getting to see.Very impressed with the quality of exhibition inside tower bridge. Pleasant to hear the story of tower bridge on how it was built and operated.It was a great experience into the transparent bridge two walkways above street and river level. The glass floors were really cool. For the people who has height issue, there is a wooden walkway to the side.Moreover fabulous view of city on the bridge, if you're lucky you see the bridge being raised. There is a schedule for it in their website.The streets around the tower bridge are lively having plenty of cafe, ice cream van, bar and restaurants.Overall a good experience and a good time to spend time with family.
