Accident solicitor Tower Bridge
Close to the Tower of London is another iconic construction, images of which have become synonymous with London itself. Tower Bridge is a beautiful suspension bridge that was finished in 1894 and crosses the River Thames. A popular tourist hot-spot, it is thought that up to 100,000 people walk across it every day during the peak season – an impressive, and somewhat daunting figure.
The construction is currently coloured red, white and blue, as it was painted in 1977 for Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee celebrations – the bridge was originally coloured a greenish blue. One for the fact fans out there, the song ‘London Bridge is falling down’ has nothing to do with Tower Bridge and instead refers to the many other bridges over the Thames.
Getting to the bridge is nice and easy, as navigating the transport systems in and around London is simple task even for the uninitiated. The nearest tube station is at Tower Hill, with the District and Circle lines and the DLR station nearby is called Tower Gateway.
What should I do if I have an accident near or on Tower Bridge?
With the heavy amount of footfall (and massive amounts of motor traffic) that crosses the bridge every day, it comes as no surprise that accidents do happen. Although it’s tempting to brush it off and let bygones be bygones, accidents can cause traumas that will affect you, and those around you, at a later date. If you’ve had an accident that wasn’t your fault, such as a fall, a trip or a road traffic accident, you might start by searching online for ‘accident solicitor Tower Bridge’ but you shouldn’t hesitate for one moment before calling Accident Advice Helpline.
