Explore Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge is one of the top London attractions and a must-see for those who land in the capital for the first time – it’s stunning no matter whether it is sunny, rainy or during the night when it is beautifully illuminated. The Tower of London, once the residence of Henry VIII, is now home for the Crown Jewels.
The history spot stares to the emblematic City’s skyline and the newest and tallest skyscraper in London, The Shard. It is worth taking the south path of Thames River towards Millennium Bridge stopping off at City Hall, HMS Belfast, Borough market and the Shakespeare Globe.
Urban and historic is what better defines the area surrounding Tower Bridge. The bridge itself seems to create the border between Central London and the avant-garde East London area. From a historical visit to the Tower of London and HMS Belfast you can rush into the City or stroll to the newish urban spots as Shoreditch or Butler’s Wharf, while the Thames paths and parks (including Victoria and Greenwich Parks) are perfect for keen runners or cyclists.
