Bridge
“Great to walk to and see not as a tourist but as a local, also near St Pauls also get to the South Bank, Tate Modern on the riverboat which is two stops.”

Bridge
“ Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London. Because of this, Tower Bridge is sometimes confused with London Bridge, situated some 0.5 mi (0.80 km) upstream. Tower Bridge is one of five London bridges now owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. It is the only one of the Trust's bridges not to connect the City of London directly to the Southwark bank, as its northern landfall is in Tower Hamlets.”

Bridge
“Tower Bridge was built over 120 years ago to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the busy Pool of London docks. Built with giant moveable roadways that lift up for passing ships, it is to this day considered an engineering marvel and beyond being one of London’s favourite icons, it is arguably one of the most famous and instantly recognisable structures in the entire world. Walking along the Thames to Tower Bridge should be one of the highlights of your stay.”

“No trip to London is complete without a visit to Tower Bridge, and it is only ten minutes' walk away ! Walk across the top above the road and the river, and try not to feel giddy on the glass floor ! Fantastic views up and down the river.”
