We’re not too far from Tower Bridge (30 minute walk) but why would we go up the towers? It’s a tourist trap, over-priced, busy and probably a let down. Right?
It was £9 per adult, under 5’s were free and 9.30am on a Sunday morning- guess what? It was pretty empty. We did fall into the honey trap that is the gift shop though, spending £40 on die-cast toys, tea-towels, themed cupcake cases and canvas bags- but the souvenir guides were only £1! The staff were friendly and there was a lift for buggies but we tired JJ out on the stairs.
The highlight was the view from the walkways between the towers, mainly the one through the floor! Little man showed us what he was made of walking along the toughened glass floor over the road and river below pointing out all the cars, while others skirted around the edges.
It was a nice Sunday activity with plenty more to do nearby (City hall, the Scoop, Butlers Wharf restaurants, Design Museum, Tower of London, HMS Belfast, St Katherine’s dock).
See you for some more London fun soon.
