"Ancient and modern. Historic and futuristic. Tower Bridge has proudly spanned the River Thames for decades and brand new, bold in glass, beside it, is the London Assembly. To me, Tower Bridge is the most majestic of the London bridges and London Assembly is the most mysterious of structures. What is it? What does its unusual and interesting shape represent? You have to visit and make up your own mind. It houses City Hall and is the office of the Mayor of London. The two ‘icons’ represent the best in the capital city architecture - one has a long history, allowing vehicular access across the tidal River Thames, the other is the centre for local government in England’s biggest city. When you stand on Tower Bridge you get the best view of the huge, glass emporium and likewise when you stand beside the London Assembly you can see the mighty, historic bridge structure; if you’re there at the right time you may even see the bridge lift to let ships through as they go up or down the river. The city fathers are not the only ones to appreciate the London Assembly. In the three exhibiton areas there are current shows on subjects related to London so look up the visiting times and take in an exhibition to add to your London experience. You can visit at set times but if you are walking on the South Bank you may call in and spend some time in the Scoop. It is an oval ampitheatre beside the London Assembly building and can seat up to 1000 people. On a warm, sunny day people call in there to take a rest on the South Bank walk. While you take time out to study your map, why not consider visiting the nearby London Dungeon as it is a ‘’screaming good way’‘ way to enjoy the capital, or for the more sedate, just walk across Tower Bridge and visit the Tower of London. I recommend you include a Tower Bridge and London Assembly morning on your South Bank of the River Thames visit if you appreciate ancient and modern. "
