FREE FAMILY ACTIVITIES -
Saturday 21st April 10.00 - 16.00
Why does Tower Bridge open? To let big boats through of course!
On Saturday 21st April we’ll be making our own sailing boats and racing them against each other to see who’s the fastest – come and join us inside the exhibition until 4pm to take part.
Our family activities are FREE with admission and are open to children of all ages but are particularly appropriate for those aged 6 to 10.
Autism Friendly Early Opening
Tower Bridge opens early on selected Saturdays for children with autism and other needs, as well as their siblings, families and carers.
Families are able to explore the Exhibition and Engine Rooms in a calm, relaxed atmosphere and also take part in a family craft activity if they wish. Also available is our family trail, which visitors can complete at their own pace.
visual story to help prepare for your visit.
Family Trail app and explorer booklet
Designed especially for families, this handy app allows grown ups and little ones to discover Tower Bridge in exciting and interactive ways.
Transform your mobile device into a working wrench and tighten the bolts of a shaky engine; shovel coal into the boiler to power the bridge, and steer your boat safely along the Thames by tipping your phone from side to side!
We've also created a great new booklet which will entertain even the youngest visitor, bringing parents and children of all ages together for a day of family fun, exploration and imaginative learning.
