The capital of the United Kingdom has a special place in the hearts of tourists. London is not only a hub of the administrative function of a political superpower, it is also a melting pot of global cultures and disciplines. The architectural appearance of the city reflects the same, with the hypermodern structures coexisting with colonial buildings. One of the iconic structures of London is the Tower Bridge, often mistaken as London Bridge. The Tower Bridge has long been the center of human attention, partially due to its still functional lifts that allow traffic into and out of London’s upper pool.
The Tower Bridge lifts to let in vessels in and out of the upper pool of London.
The Tower bridge may lift up to ten times a day during the busy period. All in all, it lifts around 800 times a year.
It is completely free to open Tower Bridge. The lifts are funded by the Bridge House Estates.
The first ship passed through the Tower Bridge the year it was opened, 1894.
You have to purchase admission tickets to the walkway and if the Tower Bridge happens to lift when you are visiting, you will be able to see the lift.
There are no specific Tower bridge lift timings. The slots are allotted as per the booking request.
