Tower Bridge – London, England

The Tower Bridge is an iconic structure in London, England, crossing over the river Thames, built between 1886 and 1894 and it is crossed by nearly 40,000 people everyday!

It took eight years to complete, five contractors and 432 construction workers to build it. Two massive piers were sunk into the river bed to support the construction and over 11,000 tons of steel provided the framework for the Towers and Walkways. This framework is clad in Cornish granite and Portland stone to protect the underlying steel work and to give the Bridge a more pleasing appearance. It is often confused with the famous London Bridge, which is actually about half a mile further up the Thames.
