Photos of Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge has stood over the River Thames in London since 1894. The Bridge was built to serve the growing population in the East end of London and took 8 years to complete.
Worth a visit on Tower Bridge is the Tower Bridge Exhibition Centre. From the exhibition centre you enjoy high-level Walkways, learn about the history of Tower Bridge and tour the Victorian Engine Rooms.
Tower Bridge opens at the centre to allow larger ships to pass down the River Thames and is known as a 'bascule bridge'. The power to lift bridge was originally supplied by steam engines but the power is now supplied by oil and. The original pumping engines, accumulators and boilers are on show as part of the Tower Bridge Exhibition. In 1977 Tower Bridge was painted red, white and blue to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee.
The Bridge is actually in two different postcodes, the North end being in E1 and the South end being in SE1.
