Tower Bridge

Most famous bridge
Tower Bridge over the Thames is probably the most famous bascule and suspension bridge in the world. It is close to the Tower of London, from which it takes its name. The bridge was built in 1894. It is quite exciting when the two centre sections (bascules) of the bridge are opened to let large vessels pass. Of course, Tower Bridge is open to visitors. The top connections are pedestrian bridges with fabulous views of London. There is also a museum in the upper section.
