Tower Bridgetickets and tips

3 things worth shouting about:

  1. 4 million people visit Tower Bridge every year, so it must be pretty darn good.
  2. The views are top-notch. You'll see all the big landmarks and you can walk over the Glass Floor and take in the city below. Well, unless you’re scared of heights.
  3. You’ll learn a fair bit too – all about the history of the Bridge, how it works and the people who have maintained it

"The glass floor is a must do!"

One of my favourites of the Tower Bridge was the glass floor which gives you a unique view of the bridge and the river below!

What to expect at Tower Bridge

A slice of Victorian London with a side of modern skyline

Ask anyone who lives in London and they’ll tell you, the views as you cross over one of the city’s bridges almost make spending over half of your monthly income on rent feel worth it. They’re that good. Problem is, you don’t get much time to take them in from the bus.

From Tower Bridge you do though – full panoramic views down the Thames and of landmarks Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Shard. And (thanks to the glass walkway), down to the river 42 metres below.

If it’s a bit of history you’re after, you’re in luck. You’ll get to its know the backstory in The Exhibition, plus you’ll see the original Victorian steam engines that used to power the Bridge in The Engine Rooms. They’ve been retired since 1976 but they’re still on display.

The Bascule Chambers are well worth a look too if they’re open to the public when you visit. These two huge brick halls are 27 metres high and allow the 1200-ton bascules to drop into them when the bridge opens to let boats through. They’ve actually been used for concerts and movie screenings before too. Pretty special.

Make sure you take a walk along The Blue Line – it's Tower Bridge’s answer to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, commemorating people who have helped to maintain and operate the bridge.
