What people are saying:

In the second half of the 19th century, the rise of commerce in the East End led to demand for a new bridge across the Thames downstream of the London Bridge. But the bridge cannot be built as a traditional fixed bridge, because it will cut off the port facilities between London Bridge and Tower of London, and the ship would not have been able to get to the docks if the new bridge was too low. A pedestrian tunnel under the Thames opened in 1870, but it still cannot replace the need for a new bridge

Additional Information

Introduction

The London Tower Bridge is one of London's iconic landmark structures. It is a bascule and suspension bridge that crosses the mighty Thames. It is also a drawbridge. The two bascules can lift to an angle of 86 degrees to let river traffic to pass. On a visit to the The London Tower Bridge, you can stand with the Thames at your back for an unforgettable photo, or you can slowly stroll along the bridge's high-level pedestrian walkways while gazing out at the scenery on either bank of the river.
