Tower Bridge London


Adjacent to the Tower of London is Tower Bridge.如果你参观伦敦塔,you will also admire Tower Bridge,one of the most famous bridges in the world.It is famous with good reason,a truly unique and memorable spectacle.

外表是骗人的,the appearance of the bridge is in harmony with the Tower of London,but the bridge is not ancient like the Tower of London,it was built only about 120 years ago.

The bridge is not a museum piece it still performs its originally function of providing a public road across the River Thames and letting tall ships pass through.作为一个行人,你可以在任何时候穿过这座桥,there are no tolls or fees.所有流行的跳跃,hop off sightseeing buses cross Tower Bridge before stopping at the Tower of London.

这座桥仍然敞开着让船通过,the central part of the highway between the towers of the bridge lifting up.

Tower Bridge only opens when a ship has reserved an opening at a specific time,it doesn't open to a regular schedule.根据这种安排的性质,开口是不规则的,it may open 5 or 6 times one day then not open at all for several days.The bridge can open at any time.


一旦你看到了桥,it is so different to anything else you have witnessed you may well be eager to learn more.

The Tower Bridge Exhibition is actually located within Tower Bridge itself.Not only do you learn everything there is worth knowing about Tower Bridge,它的历史,它是如何建造和运行的,你也可以探索桥的内部。

The highlight is undoubtedly the glass floored high level walkways right at the top of the bridge.These were originally designed so pedestrians could cross the bridge even when the bridge was lifting and closed to vehicles.正如你所能想象的,这里有很好的景色。
