An excellent visit, well worth ticket price. Lift up to tower, where you watch a short video showing shorter video clips of London at the turn of the century. The walk across gantry between towers. Excellent views, and a glass bottom to view the car and pedestrian traffic on the bridge below, as well the Thames.
Exit via the second tower on southern bank of Thames, then head to the engine room to see original mechanics behind the bridge lift operation. A very cool way to spend an hour or two

It's a really magnificent place to visit. The details and the beauty expressed in creating the bridge makes it a wonder. I'll like to visit the place again and again. The most amazing part is the fact that there is another bridge high up with a transparent floor. I wish I saw the moment when the bridge divides into two to enable big ships move across. Simply amazing.

The tower is a beautiful London icon and an engineering marvel. You can just stand there and get lost in London's beauty. Must visit at both day and night since it's nice to see both the city lights and sunlit bridge.
1) You can walk across the bridge for free.
2) Make sure you catch the bridge open for the river traffic. It's amazing!
3) If you have time and some ££ try catching the tower bridge exhibition. It's a quick informational tour and you get to walk the upper bridge with a glass view of the bridge and river beneath.
4) There's also a brilliant photo and art gallery included in the tower exhibition that you can stop and marvel.

I was sceptical when it was suggested we visit but in reality it was a great experience. For me the explanation of its construction and archive materials were fascinating.
There are great views of the river from the two elevated walkways and peering down through the extensive glass floors to the people and traffic on the bridge below added another dimension.
Included and right by the south tower is the original 'engine room' that powered the raising and lowering. Huge steam water pumps and ingenious energy storage leaves you marvelling at the ingenuity for its time.

I loved this place. So fascinating. Was great to see it up close. It is so much newer than one assumes and is not to be confused with he London bridge. This tower bridge splits in the middle to let tall lasted ships through a few times a day so keep an eye out.
