Tower Bridge Exhibition
Tower Bridge is one of the most instantly recognizable of London's landmarks. Built at the close of the 19th century, the bridge is in a neo-Gothic style with twin towers, and is unique in having bascules, which can be raised to give access to tall ships. The stone clad towers offer a rich insight into London's history, plus panoramic views across the skyline enable you to see the city's finest architecture. The Tower Bridge Exhibition is a self-guided tour which introduces you to the colorful history of the Bridge from Victorian times to the present day, how it was built and takes you along the dramatic glass-covered overhead walkways which run between the towers and then to the Victorian Engine Rooms, where you will be able to see the original engines that used to power the Bridge. Timings vary. Check website for further details.
Tower Bridge is a long-standing favorite place of mine. It is a unique, and beautiful bridge, designed to complement the nearby Tower of London. The Tower Bridge Exhibition gives you the chance to view this marvel from the inside of its high level walkways, as well as the opportunity to visit the Victorian engine rooms. You will experience fantastic views of London from the upper walkways, as well as having the chance to learn about the interesting history of this wonderful bridge. Take the opportunity to get great photos of London from the high level walkways. I have gone through the exhibition on two separate visits to London and would do it again in a heartbeat!
If you have pounds and time to kill in London, check out the Tower Bridge Exhibition, including the inside of the bridge as well as the engine room. It's not a must-see, as you can enjoy the sight of the bridge itself from thousands of points around the city, but it's worth some time if you have it to spare.
