The Tower Bridge Experience* | Exploring London

5 February 2019

When was the last time you did something touristy in your city? Like actually PAY for one of the tourist attractions? Can’t remember? Well neither can I. I’ve gone to touristy areas in London, taken touristy pictures, but the last time I paid for an attraction in London was about five years ago.

My brother and I were in town (well, the city) the other day to have lunch with our Mum. It was fun to see where she worked. We then headed towards Tower Bridge to go on the Tower Bridge experience. This is where you can learn about how the iconic bridge works and get to look out at the view from the top of the towers.

It was cheaper than I thought it would be considering the prices of some London attractions. It was £9.80 for an adult (£4.20 for a child & £6.80 for a student). We went in for free as I used my time credits, something I was given for volunteering at a city of London library. They have a bunch of other cool stuff you can use them for, so I'll definitely be checking that out.

At the top of the tower is a high-level walkway which has a glass floor where you can see the road below. It didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. After all, it would have to be quite strong to have a lot of people walking over it all day. We took lots of pictures including the classic shoe selfie.

The day was really fun and it gave me a new love for the city. When you live in a city, you tend to stay away from the attractions. You tend to visit them once when you're young and not again. It's like a 'been there, done that' type of thing. 

It made a nice change to join the queue of tourists you always walk past.

Love, Aoife xo
