What cool bridges do you have near you?
Aside from Big Ben, Tower Bridge is probably the most iconic landmark of London. Contrary to the common misconception, this is not London Bridge.
Crossing the Thames, the bridge sees over 40k people per day, and it has also welcomed everything from double-decker buses to sheep. It also raises about 1000 times per year to permit boats passage along the river.
There is an exhibition within the towers and across the upper walkway. The latter even features a glass floor to show you just how high above the cars you are! Would you walk out on it?
We didn’t want to spring for the expense at the time, but perhaps we’ll check it out on our next visit. We did walk across the lower deck, and we even got to see the bridge lift for a cute pirate-ship-looking sailboat!
