Designed by Sir Horace Jones and opened in 1894, Tower Bridge is famous the world over. Due to the volume of river traffic at the time, Tower Bridge was designed to have twin bascules that could be raised. This famous landmark also has fabulous views over the Tower of London and of river life on the Thames. Visitors can ascend by the North Tower and traverse the river protected from the erratic English elements in an enclosed walkway before descending by the South Tower. Be sure not to miss The Tower Bridge Experience, a fascinating exhibition situated inside the towers and engine rooms. Want to get a great view of the Tower Bridge from afar, but not too far? Head on over to Potters Fields Park, right next to City Hall , where you can enjoy a picnic with a view.
tower bridge was never this brilliant, it was not so clean, which was because of the war.-there is a lot of history in the bridge. they have done a lot work. tower bridge is a sight to enjoy, you have the tower of london,hms belfast,city hall which looks like a egg!. that you can walk to.
It was a great experience seeing how brilliant the old technology of that era was. I was impressed by how the thing was put together and loved the displays and reading about the history of it. I liked the view from up top. I would recommend anyone going to london, to make sure and see this masterpiece. Going back in summer of 07 to take another look and show it off to my traveling companion.
I walked across it, sailed under it, and admired it from afar. I highly recommend taking a boat ride under the bridge before walking across it. It is so huge and the boat ride will give you a better understanding of the size before you focus on the intricacies of the bridge.
It is truly a great historical landmark!
Tower Bridge is a great tour; especially if you are an engineer or interested in machanics or how things work. The design of the lift bridge is very interesting and an engineering marvel. It is very much worth the time and money.
