Learn the History of Tower Bridge & Wander the Walkways
Get to know one of London’s most famous landmarks! The Tower Bridge Exhibition gives you the opportunity to explore Tower Bridge both past and present through videos, interactive displays and individual exhibits.
Take a stroll across high level walkways with a brand new, spectacular glass floor and view the capital from the lofty heights of this celebrated Victorian bridge. Gaze down past your feet, 42 metres above the Thames and further afield, see St Paul’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf, maritime Greenwich and The London Eye!
Victorian Engine Rooms
Visit the Victorian Engine Rooms and see the striking original steam engines that once raised the bascules of the bridge – you’ll experience sounds and smells that will transport you back in time to when the engines droned into life! A fascinating virtual bridge lift reveals how the bascules still rise today to let ships pass beneath the walkways.
Art at The Bridge
An exhibition in partnership with Southwark Arts Forum, see beautiful works of art exploring the theme ‘Tides of Change’ created by artists within the Southwark community.
