TOWER Bridge celebrates its 120th birthday today!
The iconic river crossing was officially opened on this day in 1894 by the then Prince of Wales who went on to become King Edward VII.
The task of designing the bridge was thrown open in a public competition and in 1884, a design by Sir Horace Jones was approved.
To mark Tower Bridge's birthday, entry to the upper walkways costs just £1.20 today instead of the usual £9. Throughout June, there's been an exhibition of Tower Bridge images on display at Guildhall to celebrate the anniversary.
