The Attraction
Probably the most famous bridge in the world visitors have been flocking to Tower Bridge since its completion to marvel at this architectural masterpiece. Explaining the history and development of the bridge as well as giving fantastic views from the high level walkways, and with the new glass floor panels you can experience London like never before. Having enjoyed the views from the top, the tour culminates in the engine room which houses the beautifully maintained Victorian bridge lifting mechanism.

Visitors looking to enjoy this spectacular monument can choose from Hotel Directs wide range of affordable accommodation in the surrounding area.

History of the attraction
Constructed between 1886 and 1894, Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge with two towers connected at the upper level by two walkways. Over 50 designs were submitted with the final decision drawing controversy as the design was by Sir Horace Jones who was also on the judging panel.

Opened in 1982, the Tower Bridge Exhibition has told the history of the bridge using a range of media including films and pictures as well as giving visitors access to the high walkways from which they can enjoy fantastic panoramas of the city of London.

Interesting Facts
There is a popular urban myth that an American entrepreneur mistakenly bought the old London Bridge and had it shipped to Arizona under the mistaken belief that it was Tower Bridge.

In 1952 a double decker bus was forced to jump a 3 foot gap as the bridge was raised due to a warning bell not being rung.
