Whilst in London, I spent a few hours at the Tower Bridge.
Make Sure that You Get All of the Blog Posts Inspired by my #ClassyBlackGirlDoesLondon trip! --->>> READ THEM NOW!
The Tower Bridge is the "London Bridge" that you usually think of as the London Bridge. I know that now. The scenery around the Tower Bridge is beautiful, the people watching is incredible and the mayors office is located right on the Thames so I got an opportunity to mostly "man watch." Don't Judge Me. I even went to court that day...
So back to The London Bridge Experience
I decided to go on this horror walking tour UNDER the London Bridge. You know the tourist trap type of establishment-I always love those! What can I say, I'm a tourist!
Man, I'm not going to ever be right again. I am a connoisseur of horror movies. I just eat horror up. I like being a little scared and curling up tightly under my sheets.
But this show was CRAZY!!....First of all lets just get it out of the way NOW...this tour is NOT for pregnant women, people with weak bladders or heart problems. I almost ran out a few times when I saw the exit sign, but I pledged....and I wasnt trying to drop or leave my friends who I started with. *forgive my college greek talk*
Why The London Bridge Experience was So Scary!
You learn the gory story of the London Bridge, how and why it burned several times and why Londoners are so proud. Who knew that people actually LIVED inside of the London Bridge?... and that it was a "gated community?" These stories are told to you in fast talking riddles in great British accents. You participate fully by walking, talking, war calls against the Romans and of course with your poor heart as you encounter the enemies of the London Bridge. I even got to hold a dead turkey. You gotta see the show to understand.
And then it happens. They line you up, take you in a tiny cell of a room, and tell you that if you need to step out now-you can. Two people dropped....damn it was about to get scarier?
Watch My Video that I recorded right after my London Bridge Experience!
"Whut?" I contemplated leaving because I was already at my thresh hold for fear for the day, but I paid 16 damn pounds (not dollars) for this-I was in it til the END!
This wild and crazy tour only gets worse(in a good way), while it may sound corny people jumping, chain saws and gunshots had me so turned around when the show was over that it took me an hour to find the underground(The London version of a subway system) that was around the corner.
I DO think that they should tell people to make sure that they go to the restroom BEFORE the tour because its rather long, about 30 minutes. And you do NOT want to have another thing to think about while you are taking this Hell Tour called The London Bridge Experience.
I definitely give this 4 ClassyBlackGirl C's out of 5!!....I loved this attraction!!
I only wish that I had gone with somebody else so that I didn't have to hold hands with strangers!
