a bridge which crosses the River Thames in London, just to the east of the Tower of London. The part of the bridge which carries the road divides in the middle into two separate parts, which can be pulled up so that tall ships can pass under it. Tower Bridge is one of London's best-known buildings, and is often used as a symbol representing London.
