The London Tower Bridge is one of London's iconic landmark structures. It is a bascule and suspension bridge that crosses the mighty Thames. It is also a drawbridge. The two bascules can lift to an angle of 86 degrees to let river traffic to pass. On a visit to the The London Tower Bridge, you can stand with the Thames at your back for an unforgettable photo, or you can slowly stroll along the bridge's high-level pedestrian walkways while gazing out at the scenery on either bank of the river.

The Tower Bridge (English: Tower Bridge) is a bridge spanning the River Thames in London, United Kingdom. This bridge combines two bridge designs, namely lifting and hanging. Its location adjacent to the London Tower makes this bridge named Tower Bridge. This bridge was completed in 1894, and is one of the icons of the city of London. The Tower Bridge is one of the bridges owned and managed by Bridge House Estates, a charity of the City of London Corporation. The bridge consists of two tower buildings connected at the top level by two pedestrian corridors. From the pedestrian corridor which is 42 meters above the Thames, visitors can enjoy the beauty of London from above. Sights to behold include St. Paul, the business and shopping hub of Canary Wharf, and the London Eye.
One of the most iconic must-see place in London. If you want to experience the glass walkway or enjoy a great view of London, this is a great choice ! The glass floor looking down over the bridge was terrifying but fantastic.
The ticket price will includes entry to the engine rooms where you can see how the bridge was operated initially.
The Tower bridge in London is such a gorgeous place with 360 degree views all around!
