People enjoy tea time in the afternoon.

It’s a lovely sunny day. We are quite lucky to see London Tower Bridge in the clear sky. I heard London is foggy and rainy  most of the time.

Tower Bridge is an iconic tourist attraction in London city and also one of the most popular landmarks in the world.

I was excited to see the London Tower Bridge. Everyone has heard the song” London Bridge is falling down” in childhood. It’s in front of me at this moment. Though, London Bridge is another one.

Lyrics

London Bridge is falling down

Falling down, falling down

London Bridge is falling down

My fair lady

Build it up with wood and clay

Wood and clay, wood and clay

Build it up with wood and clay

My fair lady

Wood and clay will wash away

Wash away, wash away

Wood and clay will wash away

My fair lady

Build it up with iron and steel

Iron and steel, iron and steel

Build it up with iron and steel

My fair lady

Iron and steel will bend and bow

Bend and bow, bend and bow

Iron and steel will bend and bow

My fair lady

Build it up with silver and gold

Silver and gold, silver and gold

Build it up with silver and gold

My fair lady

Silver and gold will be stolen away

Stolen away, stolen away

Silver and gold will be stolen away

My fair lady

Send a man to watch all night

Watch all night, watch all night

Send a man to watch all night

My fair lady

Two sections of the bridge open about 3 times a day to pass the river traffic.

Why London Tower Bridge was needed?

170000 people a day struggled to cross London Bridge.
