Tower Bridge London

Certainly it is the most famous bascule bridge in the world: The Tower Bridge over the River Thames. Your name, incidentally, named the bridge not because of its two towers, but is named after the nearby Tower of London.

Although about them performs a main road, the waterway still has priority. For particularly large ships the two central parts of the bridge are raised. The two paddles are only opened so wide that each ship can pass through it. Fully open (to 86 degrees) but the bridge is to honor special occasions and / or to certain individuals. As once Winston Churchill.
