Apartments near Tower Bridge: cheap accommodation in central London

Among the great architectural landmarks of London, undoubtedly the Tower Bridge is one of the most recognizable and iconic of this important city. More than a century old, it crosses the Thames at the height of the Tower of London, home of the jewels of the British crown. Its two large towers are an unmistakable symbol of the capital of England and the experience of crossing it and appreciating the unique landscape it offers is a must for locals, and tourists alike. Don't forget to bring your camera!

This bascule bridge was built in the 19th century, and was designed with a lifting system so as not to interrupt the access and exit of the ships from the Port of London. The design of this structure was made by Horace Jones, who served as the City's Architect at that time. The structure is 244 meters long and 7 meters wide, while its two showy towers are both 65 meters high. The two large halves of the bridge take only a minute to make the movement of more than 80 degrees, needed to allow river traffic, although each of the parts weighs more than 1000 tons.
The steps for passers-by and the engine room of the Victorian era make up a permanent exhibition that visitors can access by paying a fee. The visit is royally interesting and worth it.
