The Basics

Many visitors to the British capital see the bridge during London tours, whether on a guided evening cycling excursion, a cruise down the River Thames, or while traveling via hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus. Some travelers also traverse the famous bridge on a walking tour or on their way to the London Bridge Experience and the London Tombs. The London Bridge Experience, situated within the still-standing vaults of the old 19th-century bridge, brings visitors on an interactive tour through time, with costumed actors enacting episodes from the bridge’s two-millennia-long history, while the London Tombs takes travelers to a former plague pit to relive some gruesome incidents from centuries past.

Yes, go on this tour
Chris provided great expertise and commentary as we went. The food offerings were abundant, interesting, and delightful. There was not a great deal of walking, and the Borough Market was a fascinating riot of colors, flavors, and new adventures we had not anticipated. We would highly recommend this tour for others.

Perfect for highlights of the city

Premier Classic London Private Half Day Tour
This half day tour is perfect for seeing the highlights of the city. You can then go back and visit this sites that appeal the most to you. Rachel was one of the best tour guides I've had. Her Black Cab is a new electric vehicle and you can tell she takes pride in her car as it was meticulously clean. Rachel had bottled water and chocolates for our trip. She made my and my son's visit to London extra special! She is fun, witty and full of knowledge! Be sure to ask for Rachel!!

We very much liked the tour except for the very poorly recorded narration. Don't cut corners to save money. Get real live tour guides and make your customers happy.

Best of London Including Tower of London, Changing of the Guard, with a Cream Tea or London Eye Upgrade
Was a very good overview of London. Our guide Karen was outstanding, very helpful and knowledgeable. The only warning is that entrance and exit to the Eye can be a challenge for some.

Tootbus Must See London: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour and Thames River Cruise
It was great and enjoyable tour. Everything is good but the number of bus is limited. The waiting time is too long. Suggesting to increase the frequency during the public holiday.

Take the tube to Monument station (via the District or Circle line) at the north end of the bridge or to London Bridge station (via the Northern or Jubilee line) at the south end. London Bridge also serves as a rail station, with routes running across greater London and beyond.

When to Get There

The Sale of London Bridge

Perhaps the most famous story associated with this icon is one of mistaken identity. In the 1960s, the rapidly deteriorating 1831-built London Bridge was purchased for a tidy sum by American businessman Robert P. McCulloch, who—according to rumor—believed he had purchased the much more magnificent Tower Bridge. Either way, McCulloch had the last laugh, relocating the 19th-century bridge to Arizona’s Lake Havasu, where it’s now a major tourist draw.
