Sir Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi Officially Unveil Glass Floor

Tower Bridge’s new glass floor was officially unveiled by world-renowned British actors, Sir Ian McKellan and Sir Derek Jacobi one late-November evening.

150 friends of the Bridge flocked to its high-level Walkways to enjoy a few words from the actors and from City Corporation Culture, Heritage & Libraries Chairman Vivienne Littlechild.

Guests were quick to position themselves over the glass panels and the “wows” could be heard as the bascules rose beneath their feet to let De Walvisch sail under. 

The evening's celebration was complemented by London-themed drinks and canapés from Tower Bridge Events Management Partner, Seasoned and music from Wandering Hands, who succeeded in getting all the guests dancing.

Take a look at some of the photos. 

Sir Ian McKellan has recently received the Freedom of the City of London.
