About London Bridge

The area of London Bridge is a stretch of the Thames's southern bank in the middle of London Bridge and Tower Bridge. Just between the traditional City of London and the more relaxed and entertaining Bankside, London Bridge is full of popular attractions and interesting venues. Of all the bridges over the River Thames, London Bridge has the longest history. It was the only bridge over London's river until Putney Bridge opened in 1729. The whole area benefits from excellent transport links, as London Bridge station is part of the overland rail network providing easy acces to Kent, Sussex, and South London. It also offers convenient direct connections to Luton and Gatwick airport.

The district is vibrant, young and dinamic, hosts a great variety of cultural and social events and its home to several museums, galleries and theathers. The most famous and popular landmarks are within the area, all reachable on foot. From London Bridge pier you can take a Thames Clipper or an evening City Cruise to explore the river by boat and enjoy an alternative view of the city.

Tower Bridge

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.

Tower of London

Located on the north bank of the River Thames, it was built in 1078 under William the Conquerror. Since then, the most hounted building in England, has housed a zoo, during the reign of King George (1199-1216), a palace, under Henry III (1216-1272) and a prison. Today it is one of the most visited and most popular tourist site in the Capital.

In the centre is the White Tower. It is the oldest part of the Tower, built to strike fear and submission into the unruly citizens of London. It contains an execution axe and chopping block where two of Henry III wifes where executed. Since 1303, the Crown Jewels are stored in the Tower. Here you can admire a precious and extremely rare collection of crowns, orbs and sceptres. One of the most famous attraction of the Tower are its Royal Ravens; legend has it that if they ever leave, the Tower would crumble. This came close to happen during WWII, when all but one died from shock during bomb raid.

The Shard

Designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano, the Shard redefines London’s skyline and has become a new iconic symbol of the city. It isn’t only the tallest building in London, it’s the tallest in the whole of Western Europe. It is a revolutionary and unexpected 95-storey skyscraper, with a height of up to 800 ft (244 metres) located right in the centre of London Bridge Quarter. The Shard's construction began in March 2009 and it was inaugurated on 5 July 2012.

This amazing pyramidal tower, dominating London skyline, has 72 habitable floors, with a viewing gallery and open-air observation deck on the 72nd floor, at a height of 802 ft (244.3 metres). Visitors can enjoy a unique sight of the city from the "View from the Shard", the viewing platforms based on level 68, or have a drink in one of the elegant bars and restaurants, located between the 31st and 35th floor.
