Behind-the-Scenes Guided Tour

Tower Bridge Exhibition 

This exclusive tour takes visitors on a rare and extended look around Tower Bridge: from the fascinating Exhibition to the hidden depths of the most famous bridge in the world.

Learn about the Bridge’s captivating history and construction from one of our expert accredited Welcome Hosts; view London life through our new spectacular glass floor, admire stunning panoramic views from the high-level Walkways and wonder at the original steam pumping engines, accumulators and boilers in the atmospheric Engine Rooms. 

Follow the Bridge’s Senior Technical Officer to those areas normally out of bounds to the public, including the Bridge Control Room, the immense Bascule Chambers below river level and the Machinery Room, which houses the impressive hydraulics that power the lifting of the Bridge.

This will be a discovery not to be missed.
