Tower Bridge Guide

Tower Bridge is the famous suspension bridge in London. Tourists have been known to think it is actually called London Bridge, from the nursery rhyme of the same name, but it isn't. London Bridge is a small, unassuming bridge further up the river. Tower Bridge is impressive, a real landmark in the city, and connects the north and south banks of the river.

Its name comes from the nearby Tower of London, where the Crown Jewels are kept. One of the more enduring legends about the place concerns a certain Robert McCuloch, the man who bought the old London Bridge in1968, and transported it to Arizona. According to the legend, he believed he was buying Tower Bridge. In later years though, Mr McCuloch denied the whole thing, maintaining that he knew exactly what he was buying.

Even now the bridge is an extremely important crossing point over the river. In total, a staggering 40,000 people travel across its length every day.

The segments of the bridge that move are called bascules. They are controlled by a sophisticated process and are raised up roughly 1000 times a year. Obviously, river traffic is much reduced nowadays, but when boats and ships need to pass through, they are afforded top priority. Any boats coming through have to inform the operators of the bridge twenty-four hours in advance.

It has to be said that Tower Bridge is one of the more impressive landmarks in the city, especially at night. Looking at it when the lights are blazing one is reminded of the river trade that brought the city its fame and prominence.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place.
