Built in the 1880's this bridge crosses the Thames River near the Tower of London hence its name.It has good pedestrian access as well as normal traffic and the best way to esperience it is to walk across as well as around its base.

So glad we made the effort to visit this. Unfortunately roadworks and diversions were in place, so photo taking leading up to the bridge were limited. Definitely go inside, the tour around the top is amazing, don't be scared of the glass floors, and take the time to do a mirror ceiling selfie!!!! Views are fantastic, we had good weather... More

Did the tour/exhibition. Very interesting history. Worth the money. The glass walkway was scary for me but I am scared of heights. Really enjoyed it.

The Tower Bidge can be crossed for free, and is the most convenient way to cross the Thames when walking from the London Tower to the HMS Belfast or vice versa. The interior of the bridge, including the engine room, can be visited with guided tours. The bridge is currently (as of November 2016) undergoing maintenance, so a visit can... More

This is also special London attraction. It is possible to go just over the bridge and enjoy the view, especially is very interesting at the time, when the bridge is open and you could see the street in upper position. And the second option is to step inside and see the engine rooms and visit also the walkway with glass... More

I was quite satisfied with taking it in during sunset from the Thames riverwalk. This time of years it's just magical with lights all over it. I don't see the need to do the museum and glasswalk, but they're available.

Great glass walkway under your feet. Kids loved it also interesting history about the bridge. Would be good if you were up there when a boat passes underneath, not sure if they open then?

This Bridge is amazing, it is so much prettier in real life, love the colours it has been painted. We got to see it open twice in the one day which is apparently rare.
