Tower Bridge has stood over the River Thames in London since 1894 and is one of the finest, most recognisable bridges in the World.

At the Tower Bridge Exhibition you can enjoy breath-taking views from the high-level Walkways and learn about the history of the Bridge and how it was built. You can then visit the Victorian Engine Rooms, home to the original steam engines that used to power the Bridge.

Tower Bridge Walkways have specially designed windows, giving visitors a unique opportunity to take photos of the views without them being obscured by glass.

Tower Bridge also houses three exquisite, stunning and unique venues, which are ideal for all styles of Corporate Hospitality and Private events, including Weddings and commitment ceremonies

Tower Bridge was the one and only bridge built to the east of London Bridge. The Bridge's design was put forward by Horace Jones and John Wolfe Barry in 1884. The need for the design was to accommodate the river traffic activities.

The bridge can be raised and lowered as required with the aid of steam powered hydraulics which had been replaced in 1976 by oil and electricity. The original pumping engines and various other parts of the bridge are now on show at the Tower Bridge Experience.

If you are interested in taking the behind the scenes tour in order to see the current machinery and control cabins you are required to pre-book. You can buy joint tickets for the Tower Bridge Experience and The Monument if you wish.
