The Tower Bridge is a must-see for any traveler visiting London. Located just a short distance from the London Tower, this iconic bridge offers stunning views of the city and the tower itself.
One of the best ways to experience the Tower Bridge is by taking a tour of the high-level walkway that allows visitors to walk along the top of the bridge and take in the views of the city and the river below.
The walkway is over 30 Meters (100 feet) above the river, and it's a great way to get a bird's-eye view of the city. However, the main attraction of the bridge is the transparent floor that allows the visitors to look down at the Thames and the lower floor of the bridge. It's kind of scary at the beginning, but after you get used to it – it's pure fun.
In addition, the tour also allows access to the Victorian engine rooms. These rooms, located below the bridge, house the original steam-powered engines used to raise and lower the bridge when it was first built in the late 19th century. The tour offers a unique opportunity to see the inner workings of the bridge and learn about its history and construction.
Overall, a tour of Tower Bridge is a wonderful way to experience London. And it's also great for kids.
