Tower Bridge Exhibition
A must-see London attraction, Tower Bridge Exhibition invites visitors to step inside the most famous bridge in the world and explore its iconic structure, current exhibitions and magnificent Victorian Engine Rooms.
Visitors can discover how and why the Bridge came into existence through films and animations in the Towers, before moving to the Bridge's high-level walkways, 42 metres above the River Thames, to admire spectacular panoramic views across London. Exhibitions such as ‘Great Bridges of the World’ in the East Walkway and ‘The Sixties’ in the West Walkway add to the experience.
The attraction also includes entry to the atmospheric Engine Rooms, which explains the original workings of the Bridge and houses the magnificent coal boilers and steam engines that have been meticulously maintained. An animation showing a unique view of the Bridge’s bascules being raised is certainly an additional highlight here.
With Tower Bridge marking its 120 year anniversary in 2014, the Exhibition will be featuring plenty of celebratory activities throughout the year.
Another of London’s best-loved attractions is the Monument. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London that devastated the City of London in 1666, it stands at 202 feet high and is the tallest isolated stone column in the world. Today, visitors can climb 311 steps to the top of this historic landmark to take in fantastic 360 degree views of London.
