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.

Easy Access Tower of London & Crown Jewels with Thames River Walk
My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Armories. The tour of the Tower of London was fantastic. The walk after was very informative and interesting. We left the tour at Borough Market was great, although we did get a little lost when we left. This is no reflection on Rob who was an expert guide. Thank you.

Tootbus London by Night: Sightseeing Bus Tour & Thames River Cruise
Great tour guide and easy way to get a quick overview of the history that London holds… helps in deciding what are the areas you would like to return to! Also not too long to start boring the children. It was engaging till the end for my son.

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.
