A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get some private access to the top of Tower Bridge. How I got this access is another story but I had unrestricted views all over London with no a tourist in site. I didn’t know that I was getting a personal tour of the walkways. I turned up there just expecting to be escorted to the place I needed to take photos but a guide directed me all around the walkways.
During this access, I was able to go out onto the balconies at the very top of both the north and south tower. This offered unrestricted views over the city of London that I wouldn’t have dreamed of getting. Of course I made the most of it and I don’t think my camera stopped clicking when I was up there. It just so happened that the only time I could be up there was at sunset. Not a problem for me!! I was sorted.
In this image you can see the view that I got from a balcony on the north tower looking over to the Tower of London. You can see how the skyline has changed over the years with the brand new Walkie Talkie, Cheesegrater and Gherkin (insert another kitchen reference here) all in the background. London is one amazing city.
