Things to do in London

View of Tower Bridge in London, England on an All Inclusive JetBlue Vacations Flight + Hotel Package

Tower of London & Tower Bridge

Arguably one of the most iconic British infrastructures, the Tower Bridge crosses the Thames River and leads to the Tower of London. Built in the late 1800s, this bridge is often confused with “London Bridge,” which is actually further west along the river, but the bridge is still accessible to both vehicles and pedestrians. The Tower of London (Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London) is a historic castle that houses a number of attractions to explore from the Crown Jewels to the famous “guardians of the tower” ravens.
