Tower Bridge Exhibition


What to Expect from Tower Bridge Exhibition

PLEASE NOTE: An exciting new feature is coming soon and as such the East Walkway will be closed from 20 October - 1 December 2014.

A visit to Tower Bridge Exhibition is the most exciting way to explore and experience the most famous Bridge in the world. Within the Bridge's iconic structure and magnificent Victorian Engine rooms there is plenty to see and do!

After watching a new animated video about why Tower Bridge was built, guests can walk into the high level Walkways, 42 metres above the River Thames. This offers visitors the chance to admire stunning panoramic views of London, spying such popular landmarks as St Paul's Cathedral and the Monument to the west and St Katharine Docks leading to Canary Wharf to the east.

In the south tower a short video shows the construction of the Bridge, before guests proceed to the Victorian Engine Rooms to view the original bridge lifting machinery. You will also experience a virtual Bridge lift, providing you with a unique view of the Bascules being raised. And currently on display is 'Art at the Bridge #5', our latest exhibition in partnership with Southwark Arts Forum.

A final visit to the Gift Shop before leaving provides an opportunity to take home a memento of your day.
