Inside the Bascule Chamber

Bascule Chamber Events

Tower Bridge's Bascule Chambers are London’s greatest hidden space. Built as an operational area to allow for the movement of the Bridge's huge counterweights used during Bridge Lifts, this cavernous brick-lined, subterranean space is normally out of bounds for everyday visitors. But, on rare occasions, this space is opened up for public use and provides a spectacular venue for special events.


Tower Bridge: 125 Years of London’s Defining Landmark

29 November - 1 December

Guildhall School of Music & Drama returns for an unmissable site-specific video projection and sound installation inside Tower Bridge’s Bascule Chamber, London’s greatest hidden space.

Discover an audio-visual narrative inspired by the hidden stories, oral histories and iconic moments from the Bridge’s 125 years at the heart of London.

Due to the operational nature of some of the spaces used for this event are not fully accessible. Attendees must be over 14 years old; those aged 14 to 18 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please ensure you read the  Bascule Chamber Events waiver before booking. If you have any access requirements, please contact us before us before booking.
