Discover a whole new perspective to London from within the most famous bridge in the world and enjoy panoramic views from the walkways, situated 45 metres above The Thames.
Get a bird’s eye view from the spectacular glass floor. Look down onto the distinct red tops of the London buses, and watch the bascules rise from under you. The glass floor is 11 metres long; so tread carefully and embrace the feeling of walking on the air above the hum of the capital city.
After soaking up the views from the modern walkways, step back in time to the historic engine room, where you can read the stories of the 80 workers who kept the bridge going through the dust of coal and roaring sounds of the engines. At the Tower Bridge Exhibition learn all about how the bridge was made through a mix of hands-on mechanisms, films, displays and much more.
Take a look at the 40 most iconic bridges from around the world and meet the faces of Tower Bridge’s past on its very own Walk of Fame. Bring their stories to life on a special ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour, where, for an extra cost, a Welcome Host will deliver a personalised experience through areas out of bounds to the general public, such as The Bridge Control Room and Bascule Chambers below river level.
Families are very well catered for at this attraction. Each month, Tower Bridge dedicates a whole day to interactive, family friendly activities and performances in their Family Learning Programme, which is included in the price of your entry ticket. If you arrive on any other day, the Family Trail app will transform your phone into a working wrench, help you steer a boat safely along the Thames or play a game of Eye Spy using all of the icons of London.
