The glass floor is a great time if you can do it! There are a lot of steps up but worth the amazing view. This is a can’t miss London attraction

I highly recommend visiting this bridge and taking a stroll over it at night, as you will get the best photos. I think it's visually stunning compared to London Bridge as well. Not to be missed for first time visitors!

You can get some fabulous photos of the bridge at sunset or in the early evening. Go east of the bridge and take your photos from there. If it is cloudy it can be very dramatic.

I had the chance to enter in this amazing building, but, unless you are over 60's or other lift requirements, you need to do the stairs not many, just bring some cold water with you and remove your jacket it will get hot.
By the way you can take a picture if you a brave enough on the glass who facing the road underneath, about 53 meters height .. Scary Not easy to believe there is glass there.
Don't try to get there where the weather is rainy, it's useless for pictures, unless you like it.
Enjoy

By far the most beautiful of the London bridges. The bridge is an artwork in itself and it has great views of the Thames.

One of the most beautiful bridges in the world. Great place for sunsets and a fantastic subject for all kinds of photos all day long. For £10 (£4 for children, £7 for students and seniors) you can visit the towers and walk over the glass floor / skywalk which is a decent enough experience and another great spot for photos with elevated views above the Thames river onto the Shard, the HMS Belfast, the Tower and the Walkie Talkie Building to justify the price. The Tower Bridge Experience is accessible through the London travel passes. So if you have one of those passes, make sure to spend half an hour in there. To get here, take the Tube (Circle/District) to Tower Hill or one of the red busses to Tower of London. From there, it's only a walk of 5 minutes max to the Tower and the Tower Bridge. It's a must-visit if you're in London. You can spend a lot of time on this bridge and on the Queen's Way, looking at this architectural masterpiece.

It was fun going up the stairs to the top. The climb in itself was interesting with loads of factoids about the building. It isn't as old as I thought - built in the time of Queen Victoria. At the top there is a video of the "olden days" which was really cool to see. The walkway connecting to two towers has a glass floor which gives you a view straight down to the roadway and
pedestrian walkway. Very scary but the kids seemed to like it.
Apparently, 8 elephants could walk across the glass without breaking it. I did ask but they never tested it with elephants.
TheTower offers a fabulous view up and down the river.

If you're in London you must visit Tower Bridge. The bridge really is a sight to behold! The view from the banks either side is fantastic! It's also close to The Tower of London and Butler's Wharf. If you're brave enough you can go right up top and look through a glass bottom but you got to like heights.
Was busy but worth the visit

My wife and I did the”inside tour”, which we thought was very worthwhile. The history of how Tower Bridge came to be and the engineering behind the original steam engine powered draw bridge was very interesting. The views of London from the elevated pedestrian bridge were great. There is a glass floor, which delighted the children. If you are afraid of heights you do not have to walk on the glass floor. Overall, an enjoyable experience.
