Tower Bridge is one of the finest and most recognizable bridges in the world. The commanding gothic towers have stood over the River Thames since 1894, becoming one of the most symbolic landmarks of the city. Discover the history of the bridge, learn about the stages of its construction and discover the stories attached to its uniquely distinctive design. You can head to the top of one of the bridge towers to enjoy panoramic views of the city too, from the Tower of London and HMS Belfast to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge and much more.

Once you've taken in the incredible view, explore fascinating exhibits and displays outlining the history of the bridge and why it was built. It's an exciting place for anyone interested in history, architecture, and engineering.

Did You Know

  • Tower Bridge was officially opened on 30 June 1894.
  • A design contest was held to choose the Tower Bridge design with over 50 designs submitted.
  • Tower Bridge was originally painted brown. It was painted in the red, white and blue colours we see today in 1977, in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee.
  • The two towers are each 213 ft (65m) tall.
  • The walkways between the towers were closed in 1910 due to a bad reputation as a haunt for prostitutes and pickpockets as they were only accessible by stairs and seldom used by pedestrians. The walkway was reopened in 1982 as part of the Tower Bridge exhibition.
