Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge Road London SE1 2UP

The last bridge across the river within the city boundaries, and with its famous hydraulic bascules to allow large waterborne traffic through, Tower Bridge is perhaps the most famous bridge in the world. It has been a fixture on the London cityscape since it was built in 1876, and its monumental shape has been a symbol for the city ever since. Anyone can walk or drive across, but for the best views you really have to get up onto the structure itself. The two high walkways are open to the public and host a permanent exhibition on the buildings – they are, thankfully, now enclosed and there’s a lift to reach them. The exhibition explores the history and engineering of Tower Bridge and other world famous bridges, plus there are plenty of camera-sized windows to open to get great photos. Tickets also include a visit to the Victorian engine rooms, and the attraction is family-friendly and fully accessible.
