Tower Bridge, right beside the Tower of London, was built in the last century as the most seaward of London's bridges over the Thames. Its position meant that large ships had to pass under it to enter the Port of London. They could not have passed under a conventional bridge, Tower Bridge got round the problem by having roadways that could be raised like a castle drawbridge.

Address: Across the River Thames. Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 2UP
Directions: Nearest Tubes, Tower Hill & London Bridge. Between Tooley Rd. & St Catherines Dock.
