Half-Term at the Bridge
Stuck for things to do with the kids over May half-term? A visit to Tower Bridge Exhibition should do the trick.
Step inside the most famous bridge in the world to learn about its 120 year history through animations and displays in the north and south towers. Experience a never-seen-before view of London life with our spectacular glass floor in the high-level Walkways, and look down to see the Thames, road and pedestrian life, all moving at pace 42 metres below.
Once the feeling has returned to your legs, follow the blue line to the Victorian Engine Rooms to admire the beautifully maintained steam engines that were once used to power the bridge lifts, as well as ‘Art at the Bridge #6', our sixth exhibition in partnership with Southwark Arts Forum.
Why not squeeze in a visit to The Monument, too? It's just a short walk to one of London’s most historic attractions, built to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666 and where those that climb the 311 steps to the top will receive a certificate to take home.
