When going to your first trip to London, there are three places that just have to absolutely be on your list: Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower Bridge.
Really, it doesn’t get any more British than that!
We visited Tower Bridge the day after Big Ben. For some reason, I truly didn’t feel like I was in England until this day. It just gave me butterflies. Definitely a must see!
Here are some of my photos from this part of our trip. At the end of my post, I am including some travel tips for your trip as well!
It was built in 1894 by the future King Edward VII.
Many people associate it as the London Bridge, but this is false. The real London Bridge further away. Instead, this is called the Tower Bridge.
It is named after it’s neighbor, the Tower of London. The bridge was designed to match this historic structure.
It opens at least once a day.
One of my favorite spots!
Tips for Your Trip:
1. In many of my other London posts, I recommend going in the morning. The beauty about the Bridge is that you can really go anytime of day!
2. You can climb the bridge by paying a fee. We did not do this and I regret it.
3. You can also walk across the bridge. There are paths along the side of it that are pretty safe.
4. It is right next to the Tower of London, so I would recommend checking out the Tower first and then the bridge right after. I captured most of these photos standing right next to the Tower of London, if you are wanting to be in the same spot!
5. It gets pretty cold here (at least in the spring it did) because it is next to the Thames, so I would recommend bringing a jacket.
