Having worked opposite London bridge (the grey boring one that goes over to monument!) for 2 years now I am staggered at how many tourists come into my shop and ask where London bridge is, when they obviously want to see Tower bridge. Its tourists of all nationalities and not just the Americans, who quite frankly should know better by now. How is it that the name of one of Londons greatest and most significant land marks is not known by so many people? Do they stand outside Westminster Cathedral wondering why it doesn't have a Dome on top? I am not whining on because I hate giving so many directions. Far from it. It is great there is so much to see in this area, and I love living and working here, and the tourists are very welcome, but surely they read guide books? Or am I being harsh?
