Best Tower Bridge Hotels

Tower Bridge Introduction

An icon of the English Victorian age, Tower Bridge stands proud as it straddles the Thames from Southwark to Tower Hamlets. It's an instantly recognisable sight, made famous by its blue-hued suspension wires and great Gothic adornments. Crowds still gather to watch the drawbridge section of the structure rise with the passing of great ships up and down the river, while others delve straight in to see the original hydraulic engines, stroll the glass-bottomed walkways and learn about the landmark's rich history in the Tower Bridge Exhibition rooms.

Tower Bridge Hotels

Tower Bridge hotels range from the opulent to the basic. Budget travellers can seek out dorm rooms in hostels with on-site pubs. Jet setters can look to Southwark's swish penthouses for bubbling hot tubs and sweeping city views. If you're eager to catch a bargain in any of them, it might be worth organising your jaunt to the iconic structure in the spring or autumn. Those times of year tend to be cheapest, ensuring you don't have to compete with the summer or Christmas rush of visitors to the capital.

Where to stay near Tower Bridge

The great thing about Tower Bridge is that it's possible to have doorstep access to the attraction from both sides of the River Thames. On the south bank is happening Southwark, a place of buzzing after-work bars and cocktail lounges, trodden by business folk and yuppies. On the north bank is the City of London, home to grand hotels aimed at bankers. Whitechapel is also within walking distance. That's a great area to go if you like quirky boutique stays, innovative dining and cutting-edge art galleries.

Things to see near Tower Bridge

Look up as you leave the north end of Tower Bridge and you'll be able to spot another of London's most iconic landmarks: The Tower of London. Inside, you can gawp wide-eyed at the Crown Jewels and unravel macabre tales of beheadings and spine-tingling ghost stories. Look up as you leave the southern side of the bridge and you'll be greeted with The Shard. That's got cocktail bars up on its umpteenth floors, offering sweeping panoramas of the metropolis. The HMS Belfast is just upstream, too – an offshoot of the Imperial War Museum that was present at the D-Day landings.

How to get to Tower Bridge

You can get to Tower Bridge on the London Underground. To the south, the closest stop is London Bridge, connected to the Northern line and the Jubilee line. On the northern banks, Tower Hill offers links on the Circle line and the District line. That means you can alight within walking distance to the great Gothic rises on the Thames with ease. Exploring this part of the capital on foot can also be rewarding – it's possible to stroll all the way from Big Ben to Tower Bridge along the South Bank walks in just under an hour.
