Tower Bridge

A view of Tower Bridge, a large suspension bridge with two towers, in London at sunset

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.
