About Tower Bridge from April
This must see London attraction invites you to step inside the most famous bridge in the world to explore its iconic structure, spectacular views and glass floor, modern exhibitions and magnificent Victorian Engine Rooms! Experience the new glass floor and stunning London views from the high-level walkways and continue to the Victorian Engine Rooms to learn about the inner workings of the most famous bridge in the world. Tower Bridge was built 120 years ago to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the busy Pool of London docks.
Built with giant moveable roadways that lift up for passing ships, it is to this day considered an engineering marvel and beyond being one of London’s favourite icons, it is arguably one of the most famous and instantly recognisable structures in the entire world. Since 1982, Tower Bridge Exhibition has told the history of the bridge and why it came into existence through fascinating exhibition content. Visitors can also experience the exciting new glass floor and spectacular panoramic views from the high level Walkways as well as the Victorian Engine Rooms, which house the beautiful steam engines that once powered the bridge lifts. This must-see attraction is the only way to explore the most famous bridge in the world!

All visitors are required to wear a face covering throughout their visit. Children under 11 and those with certain disabilities will be exempt. Please have your E-Ticket ready for inspection.
Visitors are advised to allow additional time for security checks and lift access up to the Walkways.

There are special windows that open in the Walkways so that you can take pictures without having glass in front of the camera lens.
