Tower Bridge Glass Floor
We are thrilled to unveil our brand new and spectacular glass floor across the high-level Walkways – the most significant development to the Exhibition since it originally opened in the 1980s!
The new feature offers visitors a never-seen-before view of London life, from 42 metres above the River Thames. Look down to spy those famous red London buses and pedestrians whizzing over the Bridge while river vessels sail under it – and possibly the magical experience of the bascules being raised beneath your feet.
Enjoy a taster in our glass floor video below or from our glass floor 360...
The glass floor measures 11 metres long and 1.8 metres wide and comprise of panels weighing 530 kilograms each – it is no wonder the installation took a 20-strong team to construct it!
Visitors can also download our new state of the art Augmented Reality App for smart devices – the FREE ‘Raise Tower Bridge’ app enables visitors to enjoy a full 360-degree panoramic video of the Bridge being raised from inside the Exhibition!
Don’t fret if you’d rather not look down... The Walkways also offer stunning panoramic views of London while each of the 40 bridges featured in our 'Great Bridges of the World' refreshed display showcase a breathtaking feat of engineering.
