These tickets give you access to the towers, walkways, glass floors and engine rooms; you can book a guided tour at weekends, including a tour with BSL on the last Saturday of the month. There is no fast-track option for Tower Bridge.

Cheapo Top Tip: Remember that you can walk (or drive) across the bridge for free – or watch as the bridge is lifted, a truly unforgettable sight. This happens more often than you might think; details of dates and times can be found here.

National Rail Days Out

If you happen to be heading in to London by train, you can get 2-for-1 tickets to a number of London attractions, including Tower Bridge.

London Pass

If you’re planning on hitting several sights in one day, you may be better off with a tourist pass. The London Pass gives you access to over 80 London attractions, including Tower Bridge. Time-wise, this part of London is packed with things to see and do: the Tower of London, London Bridge Experience, HMS Belfast and the View from the Shard are all just minutes away. An adult buying tickets to all these would pay £130.00, so that’s quite a saving – plus the pass gives you 10% discount in the gift shop. However, you can’t book a time slot with this pass, so check the busy slots on the Tower Bridge website to plan your visit or you could waste time queueing.

Discount: Various, depending on your sightseeing plans for the rest of the day
Cost: £79.00 for a one-day pass for an adult
Availability: Online on the London Pass website

Community Ticket

If you’re lucky enough to live locally, you could bag yourself a community ticket for a paltry £1.00. Residents of Tower Hamlets, Southwark and the City of London just need to bring along a photo ID and recent proof of address (e.g. utility or council tax bill). Not just that, but you get a whopping 15% discount in the gift shop.

Discount: Huge – pay just £1.00 for a £12.30 ticket.
Cost: N/A (other than your rent/mortgage)
Availability: Local residents
