You won't be able to drive over Tower Bridge for the next three months

Isabelle Aron

Here's a bit of pub quiz trivia for you: a whopping 21,000 vehicles drive over Tower Bridge every day. But for the next three months, that number will be a big fat zero, as the City of London is giving the 122-year-old landmark some much-needed TLC. There will be signed alternative routes for cyclists, and the 42, 78 and RV1 bus routes will be diverted to avoid the bridge. The bridge will be closed to pedestrians for three weekends during the works (November 26–27, December 3–4 and December 10–11), but aside from that, you'll be able to stroll across the traffic-free bridge throughout the rest of the refurbishment.
