I have been to London many times but never visited Tower Bridge. Once I found out that there was a 60's photography exhibition I decided this would be the time to go. After stopping off for breakfast at Borough Market we walked by the river towards the bridge.
There was a small queue but it moved quickly and the wait was much shorter than most tourist attractions in London, but maybe that's becasue it was a cloudy day. Once inside there is a video about the history of Tower Bridge. In 1884 the design for the bridge was chosen after over 50 designs were submited. It took 8 years to build, but once it was finished it was the largest and most sophisticated bascule bridge ever completed.
In the East Walkway there is an exhibition called Great Bridges of the World which was really fascinating. There really are some amazing bridges around the world! The exhibition in the West Walkway was The Sixties, with iconic images such as The Beatles, Carnaby Street and Twiggy.
Have you ever been to Tower Bridge?
