Probably the most famous symbol of London together with the Big Ben, Tower Bridge has preserved its charme over the centuries. Constructed in 1894, the Tower Bridge was the most sophisticated bascule bridge of its time, still raised today over 100 times a day to allow tall ships. The South-Tower, houses the engine room, where the original Victorian steam-driven machinery, which was used to raise and lower the bridge, can be found.
The best way to discover the bridge is by visiting the Tower Bridge Experiece, an extensive exhibition demonstrating the history of the bridge in the form of film and holograms. If you have a head for heights you can't miss the brand new "Skywalk", the spectacular glass floor across the high-level Walkways, opened on November 2014, offering visitors a never-seen-before view of London, from 137 ft above the Thames.
