    So I actually went under the Tower Bridge when I took the ferry, and I gotta say-- it's pretty cool. The ferry, I mean. You get to see a bunch of different sides of London that you might not have before, it's still considered public transportation, and you can see things like the Tower Bridge from below! Recommended if you need to get anywhere and it's an option.

    We stayed on the Shard side of Tower Bridge and strolled down for a nice walk. It's a really lovely area for a casual stroll, especially in good weather, or even nice to sit and relax.

    London, full of so many incredibly famous and well-known places to visit. The Tower Bridge is certainly up near the top of the bridge. Try seeing the bridge from a unique perspective on a river ferry!

    Everyone thinks this is London Bridge, but it's not. It IS beautiful and historic, and one of the more atmospheric places to cross the Thames.

    A very good place to visit, must see for all overseas tourists who have heard or never heard about the bridge.

    Often called 'London Bridge' - London Bridge is actually further down the stream - it has one of the best views of the Thames and is the most beautiful bridge over the water.

    A landmark in London, to be sure! You can look at it from a lot of different angles and all of them are magnificent. Be sure to do that, because the bridge shows a different piece of itself if you travel around it.

    Beautiful and iconic London attraction. I have seen it multiple times but still love to take new pictures of it.

    I was traveling with two engineers who wanted to see the Tower Bridge. A good sport, I went along. I had so much fun! First, the views from the span are wonderful, up and down the river Thames. Then it was fascinating to see the inner workings of the bridge, the mechanics of it explained and so well. The gears and chains were so interesting to look at. Inspiration for the sets in the movies Dune and Brasil?

    One of London's major constructions - worth a walk across, it is unique and still a remarkable creation. Oozes a London a few centuries old.

    It's an awesome outdoor activity that's free! It costs money to go up into the towers, but it's awesome just walking across, taking pictures (the evening with the lights is really beautiful), and exploring the other side of the Thames!

    The Tower Bridge is mistakenly called London Bridge. While it's not officially the bridge which is based off of the famous song, it's still a wondrous bridge to look at and walk across. It's definitely my favorite bridge in London.

    You cannot just go to Tower Bridge and just walk over its road deck and take photos. To see the real bridge you have to go inside it and climb the towers and walk from one tower to the other. You will also get the opportunity to go underneath the road deck and see the vast area where the counter balances for the bridge when its is opened up.

Description

Tower Bridge spans the Thames River in the heart of London. Often mistakenly called London Bridge, which is in fact its upstream neighbor, Tower Bridge takes its name from the nearby Tower of London fortress. The bridge has become an iconic London image due to its impressive design and beautiful paint job(red, white and blue) which dates from the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977. Within the bridge ... read more
