LONDON, THE TOWER BRIDGE EXHIBTION

This is exhibition that I had been meaning to visit for some time. On a recent trip to London, I saw that the admission price was on special offer of £7 with the engine room visit included.

‘A visit to Tower Bridge Exhibition is the most exciting way to explore and experience the most famous Bridge in the world. Within the Bridge’s iconic structure and magnificent Victorian Engine rooms there is plenty to see and do!
After watching a new animated video about why Tower Bridge was built, guests can walk into the high level Walkways, 42 metres above the River Thames. This offers visitors the chance to admire stunning panoramic views of London, spying such popular landmarks as St Paul’s Cathedral and the Monument to the west and St Katharine Docks leading to Canary Wharf to the east. The East Walkway houses the exhibition ‘Great Bridges of the World’ – this photographic exhibition features over 20 Bridges, each of which represents a breathtaking feat of engineering. In the south tower a short video shows the construction of the Bridge, before guests proceed to the Victorian Engine Rooms to view the original bridge lifting machinery. You will also experience a virtual Bridge lift, providing you with a unique view of the Bascules being raised’
I really enjoyed this and would recommend this to anyone visiting London – you get some great views from the walkways !
