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.

Charlotte was a lovely tour guide with two tour guides in training who made the experience feel like a trip with friends! Couldn’t have asked for a better 11am vibe on my post-7am flight in from the US. Loved every minute of the tour.

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!!

Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise
We were so thankful for the bus around London especially after a ton of walking! Also the included Thames river cruise was really informative and we got amazing photos of historic sites from a different perspective. Only downside, which couldn't be helped, was the traffic in late afternoon and we couldn't get to St. Paul's in time.

The Big Day out - London Eye Ticket, London Hop-on Hop-Off Tour & River Cruise
I love the audio tour facts and that I can hop on/off enjoying sights in-between stops. Definitely start early if you plan on visiting other attractions in the area.

London Bridge is well-connected. 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

Avoid visiting during the morning and evening rush hours, when commuting city workers crowd the sidewalks. Mid-mornings and mid-afternoons are quieter.

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.
