Tower Bridge is one of the iconic symbols of London. This instantly-recognisable drawbridge, built in the Victorian style, is located right next to the Tower of London. Tower Bridge was built in 1894 and was designed as a drawbridge so as not to affect increasing traffic on the river below. In 1982, high-level open air walkways between the towers were covered and are now part of an exhibition on the internal working of the bridge. During a visit to the exhibition, you’ll see how the drawbridge system works and will discover why Tower Bridge is so important in the history of London.
