Best time to visit the Tower Bridge

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Choosing between a weekday or weekend visit to Tower Bridge depends on your preferences and schedule.
  • Weekdays tend to be less crowded, making it easier to navigate the glass walkway and enjoy the views with fewer people around. Additionally, on weekdays, you might encounter shorter queues at the ticket office and have more space to explore at your own pace.
  • However, weekends often offer more flexibility for those with busy weekday schedules. Ultimately, the best time to visit Tower Bridge depends on your personal preferences and availability.








Very Crowded

Peak season vs Low season

  • Peak season, typically during the summer months from June to August, and major holidays, offers longer daylight hours and potentially better weather, enhancing the experience of walking across the Glass Floors and enjoying the panoramic views of London. However, peak season also means larger crowds and longer queues.
  • On the other hand, visiting during the low season, such as late autumn or winter, offers the advantage of fewer tourists and shorter queues, allowing for a more intimate and relaxed exploration of the bridge.
