Tower Bridge is one of the most instantly recognizable of London's landmarks. Built at the close of the 19th century, the bridge is in a neo-Gothic style with twin towers, and is unique in having bascules, which can be raised to give access to tall ships. The stone clad towers offer a rich insight into London's history, plus panoramic views across the skyline enable you to see the city's finest architecture. The Tower Bridge Exhibition is a self-guided tour which introduces you to the colorful history of the Bridge from Victorian times to the present day, how it was built and takes you along the dramatic glass-covered overhead walkways which run between the towers and then to the Victorian Engine Rooms, where you will be able to see the original engines that used to power the Bridge. Timings vary. Check website for further details.
