About Tower Bridge

London Tower Bridge was completed in 1894. It is a beautiful piece of Victorian engineering and is one of the many symbols of London. The bridge itself was powered by steam right up until 1976 when the system was electrified. The bridge is 135 ft high and 200 ft wide and in its heyday was opened 5 times a day to let big ships through. The two towers are joined near the top by a catwalk which gives beautiful views along the river Thames.
The bridge now offers The Tower Bridge Experience, which gives interactive displays showing the Bridge in action and detailing its entire history. You also get a walk along the catwalk and a look at the steam engine which once powered the bridge.
