TOWER BRIDGE IS LIFTING UP



London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down. The Tower Bridge is easily mistaken as the London Bridge because of its magnificent structure. I was curious what tower bridge lifting up was like so naturally I searched for its lift time. Lift times are posted on the Tower Bridge Exhibition website and it tells you exactly what ship or vessel requested to be going through. I did the exhibition last summer and went through the walkway between those two towers, rather an interesting view up there.

A long long time ago a bus actually jumped through the gap when they were lifting up the bridge, they take security very seriously now, with alarms and staff directing us, gates and all that. It was pretty cool because the bridge lifted up for a cruise ship and people were waving at us. Once the bridge-way was down again you can tell those who were in a rush to get through. Especially those bikers and cars!
