About Tower Bridge, London

Tower Bridge London is the most sophisticated bascule and suspension bridge in London built during the late 19th century. The eastern side of the city of London was developing at a fast rate during the industrial revolution years and the requirement for an alternative route was realised. The City Cooperation selected a design for a futuristic bridge whose central span could be raised using steam powered engines. The bridge was made operational by 1896 after a relentless and intense labour of work for a duration of 8 years. Not only is the Tower Bridge renowned for its Neo-Gothic architecture but also for offering one of the most beautiful 360 degree panoramic views of the London city. The renowned landmarks of the city can be seen through the Bridge’s top, with Thames river flowing beside, making it a popular attraction for tourists. Look up the North and South Tower to enjoy the stunning panoramic views and feel the thrill of seeing London and its mighty river through the Glass walkways. Follow the footsteps on the blue line to reach the powerhouse of the most sophisticated suspension bridge to get an inside view of the background setting of the functioning of the bridge.
