Tower Bridge is not The London Bridge We Learned in Nursery School

Tower Bridge is not The London Bridge We Learned in Nursery School.

Remember that nursery rhyme we used to sing when we were young – London Bridge is Falling Down? Well, I thought that the bridge the song is talking about is the one below – the Tower Bridge. Why? Because it’s the most iconic bridge in London and I couldn’t imagine any other bridge to be worthy of the famed nursery song. ๐Ÿ˜€

Obviously, I was so naive to believe that for ages. You see, if I hadn’t gone to this marvellous city, I wouldn’t have known that. And no one have corrected me. I blame my British friends. ๐Ÿ˜€

And yes, there’s a London Bridge but it’s not grand in scale and style. It looks just like any other bridge in the world. ๐Ÿ˜€

The Tower Bridge isn’t just an iconic landmark but also a photogenic piece of architecture.

There’s a glass floor above the suspension bridge itself – and if you’re lucky, you’d be able to see the big ships passing by below.

There are several bridges that cross the River Thames but I think the Tower Bridge is the most stunning of all. It is, perhaps, the most beautiful bridge in the world. Sorry, Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco! ๐Ÿ˜‰

There’s an exhibition inside the tower to get to know the history and how the tower was made. Also inside, you’ll be able to see the engines that dates back to the Victorian period.

The bridge is very accessible via the Tower Hill Metro. It’s also very close to the London Tower, another attraction you wouldn’t want to miss.

If you like the view of the bridge during the day, you should come back at night. I guarantee that you’d fall in love with it.
