Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge over the River Thames. It is close to the Tower of London, which gives it its name.It has become an iconic symbol of London.

The bridge consists of two towers which are tied together at the upper level by means of two horizontal walkways which are designed to withstand the horizontal forces exerted by the suspended sections of the bridge on the landward sides of the towers. The vertical component of the forces in the suspended sections and the vertical reactions of the two walkways are carried by the two robust towers. The bascule pivots and operating machinery are housed in the base of each tower. Its present colour dates from 1977 when it was painted red, white and blue for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. Originally it was painted a chocolate brown colour

Tower Bridge is the only moveable bridge on the River Thames, and is funded by an ancient trust – Bridge House Estates – which had been set up to manage London Bridge in the 11th Century. The trust keeps the bridge toll-free for road and river traffic, and is managed by the Corporation of London, who own and manage it. It is insured by Lloyd’s of London on the shipping register as a ship, and for the first 23 years of its life, all staff were ex-sailors and servicemen.

    Wow, haven’t seen this for almost 40 years and I was only in London for the day
    and that was to catch a plane to Aus. I was 8 years old I think.
    Excellent shot and to me it’s one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. Behind the London bridge.
