Tower Bridge is undoubtedly the most famous bridge in the world, but is often confused in name with the also well-known London Bridge. This is a must see attraction, mainly for the photo op it provides. Tower Bridge Tours are held daily. There are great views from the walkway at the top, which continues on to the Victorian Engine Room where you can learn about the drawbridge’s inner workings. I have a beautiful walk we recommend that concludes at Tower Bridge. Ask me about it!
