Travel Tips for visiting Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge, London's most famous bridge, stands proudly over the River Thames for nearly 250 meters, a recognizable icon at first glance and a unique feat of engineering as well as a great tourist attraction. Learn how the bridge works in the engine rooms with a guided tour, then climb the tower for a panoramic view, and watch London through the glass floor.

It is a suspension bridge and is made of granite for its facade, steel for its structure and concrete for its foundations. It is located between the boroughs of Southwark and Tower Hamlets, near the Tower of London from which it takes its name.

Tower bridge was officially opened on 30 June 1894 by the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VII, and his wife, the Princess of Wales, Alexandra of Denmark.
The bridge connects Iron Gate on the north side of the river with Horselydown Lane to the south, now called Tower Bridge Approach and Tower Bridge Road respectively3. Until the bridge opened, Tower Hill tube station, 400m to the north, was the quickest way to cross the river from Tower Hill to Tooley Street in Southwark.
