Welcome to Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge

The twin spires of the iconic drawbridge stand 213 feet (65m) above the Thames River, and form one of the most popular attractions in London. Often mistakenly referred to as the London Bridge (which is a bit further upstream), the Tower Bridge functions as both a roadway and tourist attraction, and provides a magnificent view of London from the upper walkway. Inside is the Tower Bridge Exhibition, which showcases the Victorian engine that powers the drawbridge, and the history of the bridge, which goes back to 1886.
