What to expect from Tower Bridge Exhibition
NOTE: On Tuesday 18 March, the Exhibition will

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.
The East Walkway houses the exhibition 'Great Bridges of the
World' - this photographic exhibition features over 20 Bridges,
each of which represents a breathtaking feat of engineering. In the
south tower a short video shows the construction of the Bridge,
before guests proceed to the West Walkway where they can view our
brand NEW exhibition,
London'. Here, visitors can admire copies of over 60 iconic
illustrations and excerpts from painter and illustrator, Miroslav
Sasek's classic children's book, 'This is London'.
Continue on to the original lifting machinery in the Victorian
Engine Rooms, complete with sounds and smells that transport you
back in time to the Bridge's origins. 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 brand NEW exhibition in partnership
with Southwark Arts Forum.
A final visit to the Gift Shop before leaving allows the chance
to take home a memento of your day.
