River Thames Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise
- Valid: 1 day
London's iconic Tower Bridge is as extravagantly British as is possible for a bridge to be! It's undoubtedly a must-see. So how do you make the most of your visit to this unique triumph of engineering?
42 meters above the river, Tower Bridge's new glass walkway provides a knee-knocking view of the boats and pedestrians passing beneath your feet. Don't worry, it's quite safe!
The East Walkway not only offers great views across London's historic trading ports and buildings, but is also used as one of the city's most unique exhibition spaces.
Today the bridge is held up by Wi-Fi and selfies (probably), but the old engine rooms demonstrate the former logistic miracle that powered it, complete with authentic sounds and smells!
The closest Tube station to Tower Bridge is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines. The Tower Gateway DLR station is just as close.
Bridge lifts are booked in advance for passing ships. There is no set schedule, but if you want to be sure to see the event, times can be easily found on Tower Bridge's official website. Failing that, you can book a bridge lift yourself for free. All you need is a very tall boat!

Lovely boat and really entertaining information about landmarks on the trip. We sat upstairs for the trip to Greenwich and enjoyed the sights and commentary. Really handy to be able to hop off, visit Greenwich and hop back on to return to Westminster. On the return we sat indoors which was lovely and warm and the cafe was handy. All the staff we friendly and helpful and a great laugh. Would highly recommend for a chance to see London landmarks from a different perspective.
Tim, our guide, was superb. Very knowledgeable, patient, easy to understand and really cared that everyone had what they needed. Great sense of British humor. Really knew his stuff.
We booked the family cruise excellent value for money, got to see all the sights, good onboard commentary, highly recommended
Amber was a fantastic tour guide. Very passionate and knowledgable. We would definitely recommend the VIP tour
First time in London and this was the highlight would highly recommend to anyone visiting
