Really impressed by the Tower Bridge Experience - one of the best value tourist attractions in London. Like many others, I've traveled over the bridge hundreds of times, and was skeptical of what the "Experience" would provide. Then over half term I had to take the kids somewhere nearby and we had a few hours to kill, so I booked tickets and got there for opening time.
First pleasant surprise - the price. One adult and two children cost just £15 - in London tourist attraction terms that's an absolute bargain.
Second pleasant surprise - the experience itself. Getting up close and personal with this iconic building is fascinating in itself. They've also done a fantastic job adding some lightweight history and information. And the glass floors are pretty spectacular. Also, don't skip the engine room - it's a great introduction to steam power as well as some of the stories of the people who built and worked on the bridge.
Third pleasant surprise - the staff. Without a fault they were helpful, cheerful and doing a great job.
In the end, we spent probably an hour and a half - which for something I thought would be a quick 'take a look' is really impressive.
So all in all, consider me a convert to the Tower Bridge Experience :)

Arguably the most iconic bridge in London. It is very well kept and great to walk across, or even drive. You can see great views from either side of the bridge.
The bridge occasionally opens to let large boats through. It is well worth the wait as the boats are very impressive and the bridge is too.
It is possible to climb the bridge to the top but you have to pay a fee for this. Definitely worth going once.

Had been really looking forward to seeing the bridge as so many movies that feature London have this as a symbol of the city. It didn't disappoint. Took loads of photos from Tower of London site. Walked over it. Took photos from the water when we did a river cruise and went under it. Always loved bridges, now can finally tick the Tower bridge off of the list.
Walk from London Eye to Tower Bridge is truly an experience worth the time and distance. Wonderful architecture to be appreciated.
Great views of the Tower of London from the other side of the Thames.
It fills the bill in that it is and looks just like the pictures.

We finally decided to see this attraction, and it was worth it. You learn the history of the bridge, how it was done, the main players, how it works, etc. Then you go up up up to the top walkway. You may be so busy marveling at the views out the windows, you might now even notice the glass floor over the Thames!! Look down! Look UP to the MIRRORS and take a picture of yourself standing way up over the Thames. And don't miss the picture machines, one on each side. For 3 pounds you get a great picture of your group up there, & the more you buy , the cheaper they are. Great picture postcards, we bought 3.

An absolute stunning site to see no matter how many times you visit London. Be sure to visit the museum on the inside to explore the construction and the history of this magnificent structure. Also Make sure that if you take the train into London you take advantage of the two for one deal on tickets! My personal favourite thing to do is look up the times for when the drawbridge is going to be up to let boats come through.
