Tower Bridge Want to see London from a little different perspective - go to Tower Bridge and walk across the bridge. From here you will see many attractions and can get great pictures. If you have the time to go here one evening, do so, it's worth the walk.

Beautiful bridge from 1894

Tower Bridge was built on the site where it before was a wooden bridge called London Bridge. In 1894 the bridge was completed after eight years of work by several hundred people. It is made of steel and the outside is covered with granite and stone.

The Bridge is a bascule bridge that today do not open so frequently as before. Today, there are not so many high masted ships the passes under the bridge and the large port is located outside London.

The beautiful design was developed by Horace Jones and John Wolfe Barry.

Facts - Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge weighs approximately 11 000 ton, is 244 meters long and 16 meters wide. Lower parts of the bridge can be folded down so smaller boats can pass.
The bridge is built about 65 feet above the Thames.

The valves are now being operated by electricity, but previously they used steam engines. There is no problem to walk over the bridge - at the top between the two towers there is a walkway. One tower has a museum.
