Tower Bridge Glass Floor
Experience the spectacular glass floor across the high-level Walkways when you visit Tower Bridge!
This permanent feature offers visitors an incredible birds-eye 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 experience the magic of the bascules raising beneath your feet.
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.
