London Bridge Hotels - London

Mini guide to London Bridge

     

During the weekend, the area around London Bridge, boasting many popular attractions, is full of tourists and is a nice way to experience the Thames side of London. During the week, this area is hectic, being on the edge of the City of London and its financial district.

The major landmark in this area is the Tower of London. The Beefeaters at the entrance make a great photo opportunity and are wonderful guides through the Tower complex. Don't miss a viewing of the Crown Jewels! Access is from Tower Hill tube station.

From the Tower of London, you have a great view of Tower Bridge spanning the Thames. Completed in 1894, it was the last road bridge built in London that can be raised to let large ships through - if you're lucky, it is quite a sight to see the bridge raised. There is a museum inside the bridge that shows how it was built and the history of the area. The view from here is just spectacular.

If travelling with kids, you can't miss the infamous London Dungeon. Displays of gruesome wax scenes of murder and execution in the maze of the dungeons are fantastic and just what the kids love! Access is via London Bridge tube station.

A visit to the waterside is not complete without visiting a ship. The HMS Belfast was in service during the Normandy Landings in WW II, as well as in Korea to support the UN in 1965. Access is from London Bridge, Tower Hill or Monument tube stations.

Although not quite in the centre of London, this area has excellent tube connections and many restaurants and bars that cater to the people working in the area. London Bridge station is on the Northern line and Monument station offers excellent connections to the rest of London with access to District and Circle, Docklands Light Railway, and Central lines.
