Tower Bridge

  • London, United Kingdom (UK)

Last updated: 28 April, 2024

This suspension bridge, built in 1894 across the River Thames, is one of London, if not the world’s, most famous landmarks and an architectural marvel.

This unique bridge consists of two towers connected by walkways. Cars and pedestrians cross on the lower road level, which famously opens up from the centre to allow ships to pass under. Visitors can cross a glass floored walkway at the upper levels, with views down the Thames and across over the Tower of London.


Price from: £12
Minimum age: 0
Age suitable: 8+
When: All year around

Getting there & doing it

Anyone can walk across the bridge at the road level; however to access the glass-floored walkway you need to buy a ticket.  Tickets can be bought online 50 minutes before you go, or at the ticket desk upon arrival. You can also book onto a 90-minute guided tour on the website.

When to do it

The Bridge is open all year round, seven days a week.
