The views from Tower Bridge are stunning and for a ticket price for adults of just £5.50 this is a definite "Must Do" for any visitor to London! The ticket price includes a visit to the Engine Room and there are lifts to the East and West Walks with interactive displays and videos. The history of the bridge is fascinating and includes lots of interesting little details. The staff are friendly and helpful and will even escort you to the correct lift if they have mis-directed you! (There are different lifts for going up and down - sometimes the staff get it wrong :))

The bridge was built between 1886 and 1884 and is a modern steel structure clad in stone to complement the Tower of London.
