Icons of London

The Tower Bridge and the ever-present red double-decker bus are definitely icons of London.

Sometimes confused with London Bridge, situated some 0.5 mi upstream, Tower Bridge has become an iconic symbol of London. It is a combined bascule and suspension bridge, built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London.

The majority of buses in London are still red and therefore the red double-decker bus remains a widely recognized symbol of the city.
