London Tower Bridge

The iconic Tower Bridge is part bascule (drawbridge) and part suspension. The total length is 244 metres, but the longest span is just 61 metres. It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as the London Bridge (which is actually the next bridge up the Thames). The London Tower Bridge was opened on the 30th of June, 1884, 127 years ago.
