Overview

On our London Bridge walk, you will hear about many of the hidden treasures of this recently rejuvenated area of London. Butler’s Wharf is a fine example of how the area has been rejuvenated within the last few decades.

There are several major tourist attractions on the route. As well as the obvious Tower Bridge and Tower of London, you will pass The London Bridge Experience, opened in early 2008, the London Dungeons, Winston Churchill’s Britain at War Experience, The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garrett, and the Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum.

This part of London once marked the beginning of many a journey out of the city and as such was home to many hostelries. The George Inn, much of which is still just as it was 200 years ago, provides a spectacular example of the galleried courtyards that once used to pepper this area. Both Shakespeare and Dickens are rumoured to have enjoyed the surroundings of such inns in this part of London.
