When in London, take out time to visit the Tower Bridge of London, one of the world’s most popular. Visible from far, this unmistakable spectacle sparkles with its neo-gothic towers and cerulean suspension struts. Built between 1886 to 1894, ‘Tower Bridge of London,’ is a historical platform, a bascule and a suspension bridge that stands as one of London’s most iconic and visited landmarks. Back in 1894, London was a flourishing port with an unprecedented steam-driven bridge that could be lifted and dropped using counterweights.
This counterbalance mechanism boosted the roadway to welcome approaching ships in merely 3-minutes. Nowadays the bridge operates on the electrically powered mechanism and is elevated, ‘largely’ for entertainment. The interiors of Tower Bridge analogously lace with its outer beauty. I was left amazed as I walked on the glass floors 42m above the River Thames, enjoying a ridiculous view of London. The bridge is a must-visit attraction if you are in the neighbourhood. Before leaving, I sat on one of the snug English benches nearby, re-observing the evergreen British culture in quiet.
