What our visitors say

‘It was really enjoyable. Our guide, Danielle, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. More importantly, she could explain the intricacies of the Engine Rooms and the building of the Bridge in a way that my nine year old son could understand whilst making it fun. He couldn't wait to tell his friends about it on Monday and I would definitely recommend this as a way to see Tower Bridge - it was much more interesting.’
