Tower Bridge


Discover the stories behind the engineering, the people, the architecture and the city that built Tower Bridge. 

Since 1982, visitors have been able to see inside Tower Bridge and discover 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 London's Defining Landmark!
