A symbol of British history and culture, Tower Bridge is a must-see attraction for your stay in the capital
London’s Tower Bridge is one of the world’s most well-known tourist attractions and landmarks. Overarching the River Thames in the UK capital, the iconic bridge represents the historical past of the city dating back to the Roman Empire that was integral to the access of city, as it crosses the river.
Its importance in English history is unprecedented. Folklore claims that whoever controls the Tower Bridge controls the River Thames, and whoever controls the Thames controls London. It has been built, deconstructed, and rebuilt many times as an impressive symbol of London’s history and growth.

The original 19th-century stone arched bridge was replaced by a box-girder bridge constructed from concrete and steel. This superseded a 600-year old medieval structure which preceded Roman timber bridges, the first foundations of a bridge crossing of the Thames. Until 1729 it was the only road crossing until a new bridge was built at Kingston Upon Thames. Stretching a total of 928 feet (283 m) long, the bridge has seen many upgrades and amendments over time.
The best way to visit London Bridge is on foot to appreciate the sheer scale and detail of the bridge. Don’t forget to look out famous landmarks such as The Shard and London Eye. There are many tour guides and organisations who can offer recounts of the history of the Tower Bridge and humorous tales of bygone London, look out for them during your stay. As one of the city’s most visited sightseeing attractions, you can also see it via the many open top bus tours which operate around the city.
