Watch Time Bascule

Watch a newly commissioned film by internationally acclaimed artist, inventor and filmmaker Di Mainstone.

The film reimagines Tower Bridge as a giant musical instrument, drawing inspiration from one of the first women to work on the Bridge - Hannah Griggs, who cooked for the Bridge Master and his family between 1911-1915. Hannah plays the role of musical maestro to pluck the strings and ‘play’ the iconic London landmark.
