Tower Bridge

Constructed quite near to the Tower of London, Tower Bridge is one of the beautiful bridges that adorn the River of Thames. Not only its one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, but Tower Bridge is also an excellent feat of architecture and engineering. This bridge was built 120 years ago and is known for its moveable roadways. This means that the two leaves of the bridge fold up to let a large vessel pass. The bridge gets lifted more often than you can think, on average 850 times a year.

Moreover, it got the glass floor on the upper walkways in 2014 that enables the people to look straight down to the river 42 meters below. To learn more about the 19th-century bridge and take in the beautiful views from the high walkways, visit the Tower Bridge Exhibition. From the elevated sidewalks, people can enjoy the views of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, and The Shard.
