Tower Bridge, London

London is the capital city of the United Kingdom. With over 8,5 million inhabitants it is one of the largest cities in Europe.

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London which crosses the River Thames. It is close to the Tower of London, from which it takes its name.

London Bridge was originally the only crossing for the Thames. But as London grew there was need for another major crossing over the Thames. So in 1876 it was decided to build a new bridge. Finally building started in 1886 and it took 8 years to complete it.

Thx Francis!
