Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge opened in 1894 and measures 800ft (240m) between the two towers which house the machinery for raising the bascules (each weighing about 1000 tons) in 90 seconds.

Visitors have the opportunity to explore Tower Bridge’s iconic structure, spectacular views and glass floor, modern exhibitions and magnificent Victorian Engine Rooms.
