Often confused with the grand Tower Bridge, London Bridge, UK is more functional than fancy. It does, however, have a long history: It was first erected over the Thames River by the Romans, way back in AD 50. No visible trace remains of the original bridge, nor of the handful of structures that replaced it, including the one that became the subject of that famous nursery rhyme. Though the current concrete bridge, which opened to traffic in the 1970s, isn't so photogenic, its views of London are hard to beat.

Ride on the Big Red Bus
Windows were clean so I could get good pictures through them. It wasn’t as good because many stops closed due to protests but that wasn’t Big Buses fault.

Best Day in London
We could not have had a better time. Ian, our guide was the best and he provided a most memorable day in London. The cab was very clean and comfortable. Ian took the time to talk to us and find out what we wanted to see and designed our itinerary straight away.
