Tower Bridge Behind The Scenes Tour

Location: Tower Bridge

November 4, 2023 - December 31, 2023

This fascinating tour will take you on a rare and extended look around Tower Bridge: from its iconic Towers, high-level Walkways and Victorian Engine Rooms down to its hidden depths, normally out of bounds to the public.

Led by one of the Tower Bridge expert guides and members of the Technical Team, you will discover the fascinating history of the Bridge’s design and construction, take in the unparalleled views from the spectacular Glass Floor and high-level Walkway, then get up close to the original steam engines, accumulators and boilers in the Victorian Engine Rooms.

This tour also goes behind-the-scenes to the Bridge’s operational areas including the Control Cabin, Machinery Room and the immense Bascule Chambers, which house the enormous 422-ton counterweights that form the unseen part of the iconic Bridge Lifts.

This is a thrilling experience not to be missed.
