It's Not Falling Down

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge stretching over the River Thames, taking its name from the nearby Tower of London. Consisting of two towers connected up top by two walkways, the bridge has become an iconic image of London. Originally brown in color, the bridge was in fact painted red, white and blue for the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. Recently during the 2012 London Summer Olympics, the Tower Bridge sported the Olympic rings. It's sometimes incorrectly referred to as the London Bridge, which actually lies just upstream.
