Enjoy the unique view of London's sights
Visit the creative exhibition 'This is London'
Explore the sights and history of the Tower Bridge and visit a family-friendly exhibition that enchants young and old.
Over 100 years ago, the Victorians built a bridge that has become one of London's most famous landmarks. High-level walkways were built to allow people to cross the Thames while the bridge was raised to allow large ships to pass by. Today, these walkways serve as viewing galleries and offer visitors the most spectacular views of a constantly changing London skyline.
The Tower Bridge, completed in 1894, was immediately celebrated as a London icon and one of the great technical marvels of its time. Come in to explore its history, unveil its secrets and enjoy a breathtaking view from its high walkways, 42 metres above the Thames.
The walkways offer fantastic views of many of London's most famous landmarks, including St Paul's Cathedral, sky-scratching Canary Wharf, maritime Greenwich and The London Eye. Special viewing windows make photography easy.
The Victorian engine rooms contain the original steam engines, great engines whose immense power once raised the bascule of the bridge. A "virtual bridge lift" shows how the bascule still rises today to allow ships to pass under the catwalks.
Tower Bridge is also delighted to present 'This is London', a fabulous, family-friendly exhibition with internationally acclaimed illustrations and playful prose from Miroslav Sasek's classic children's book. First published in 1959, the charming, child-friendly view of London's landmarks, buildings and people is a loving portrait of the city that has enchanted generations of children and adults alike.
In this special exhibition, Tower Bridge, in collaboration with the Sasek Estate and Rizzoli International Publications, brings the world-famous book of 29 large ads to life. The printed reproductions of Sasek's nifty works of art are complemented by information about London today, so these charming and impressive images are your guide and you can see how much (or how little) London has changed since the 1950s. All against the backdrop of the incredible views of the city from the Tower Bridge's high-ranking walkways, a number of the book's famous landmarks can also be seen from the exhibition room, from which you can see St Paul's Cathedral, the Monument and of course Tower Bridge itself. Be inspired by Sasek! The exhibition provides colouring sheets for you to create your own masterpieces.
