Tower bridge features a road which can be raised to allow tall ships to pass through to the Pool of London and an elevated walkway affording permanent access.

Nowadays there is a museum in the bridge called the Celebration Story.

Best viewed from near HMS Belfast or Butler's Wharf , both on the South Bank of the Thames.

LondonNet Tip: For great views try a Tower Bridge sunset at the Horny Man riverside pub in Hay's Galleria, by HMS Belfast, (London Bridge Tube).
