Behind-the-scenes Tours are back

Tower Bridge is delighted to announce the return of our popular Behind-the-scenes Personal Guided Tours.

Discover what goes on behind the scenes at London’s defining landmark.

Taking place every weekend from November to February, our renowned Behind-the-scenes Tours will take you on a rare and extended look around Tower Bridge: from its iconic Towers, high-level Walkways and Victorian Engine Rooms down to its hidden depths, normally out of bounds to the public.

Discover the fascinating history of the Bridge’s design and construction from one of our expert accredited Welcome Hosts. Take in unparalleled views through our spectacular Glass Floor and high-level Walkways, and get up close to the original steam engines, accumulators and boilers in the Victorian Engine Rooms.

Then join one of our expert Senior Technical Officers in the Bridge’s operational areas including the Control Cabin, Machinery Room and the immense Bascule Chambers, which house the enormous 422-ton counterweights that power the mighty Bridge Lifts.

This is a thrilling discovery not to be missed.
