Continuing on with my TravelEx day, after fitting in the Sherlock Holmes museum and some delicious snacks, we made the long but beautiful walk over to Tower Bridge. Neither Sam nor I had been to the top and explored the Tower Bridge exhibit. Sam managed to conquer his fear of heights wonderfully, with only one or two bobbles. (And those being whilst walking across the glass floor high above the River Thames, so it makes sense.)
We were at the top around the magic hour and London looked stunning; awash in pinks and violets and golds. It’s hard not to fall in love with the view. Also it’s astonishing how much construction there is in London. There was no direction that you could look without seeing multiple cranes.
The only downside is that in all the historical information about the Tower Bridge, there is nary a mention of the 80s classic film, “Biggles: Adventures in Time” and the Commanding Officer (Peter Cushing) who lived in the apartment on top of Tower Bridge.
The Tower Bridge Exhibition cost £9 and it’s worth every penny. Compared to the price of the London Eye, it’s great value for money.
