The Tower Bridge Exhibition - a must for London travel card holders

Published: Thursday 26th of June 2008

Since its completion in 1894, London's Tower Bridge has been one of London's most significant landmarks and the Tower Bridge Exhibition offers London card holders a perfect opportunity to uncover a few of the bridge's secrets and charms.

Complete with breathtaking views above the River Thames - which may even reveal a glimpse of St Paul's Cathedral, the exhibition offers guests the opportunity to study a number of films, in addition to an exploratory trip down into the Victorian-era engine rooms.

"Originally, London Bridge was the only crossing over the Thames. As London grew, so more bridges were added, but these were all to the west of London Bridge, since the area east of London Bridge had become a busy port," says the bridge's official website.

Interestingly, although the high walkways were designed for use by the public, they were closed in 1910 because of a lack of interest.

London Pass holders can receive free entry to the Tower Bridge Exhibition.
