What to Expect
Tower Bridge’s Behind-the-Scenes tour is a unique experience with access to operational areas not normally open to the public. The tour visits both indoor & outdoor areas which are naturally dirty as part of everyday Bridge operations. There are uneven floors and some of the spaces are damp and cold, especially those located underneath the Bridge and below river level - some of these are considered confined spaces and have no windows and no natural light.
The Bascule Chambers are accessed via 115 steep steps.
All visitors need to:
- Wear comfortable footwear and practical, warm clothing
- Be of sound health in the event of an emergency evacuation from these areas
- Wear a face covering for the duration of the tour (unless exempt) and follow social distancing guidelines.
