“What a view!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Fairly cheap (compared to other attractions) for the visit. We made the most of the tickets (and the military discount) and viewed not only up the bridge at the lovely views and building. But also underground into the engine rooms. Very interesting and informative visit.

It is an awesome tower, every time I go there I get taken aback. Walking on this bridge at night time when there isn't much people was one of my favourite moments. I didn't pay for anything, just walked around the bridge and on it.

“Great Views over the river.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

This attraction didn't cost too much and you got to go across the upper walkways between the towers, which gave you great views up and down the river.
There was also some interesting info and photos along the walkways - not sure why they had an exhibition of a lot of 60's celebrities - and you got chance to look at the engine room.
Overall, it was worth the money.

“Behind the Scenes”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The Tower Bridge Exhibition is a behind the scenes tour of the bridge. After an elevator ride upstairs, you watch a short film about the history of the bridge then walk across the upper walkways which double as an exhibition hall. When I visited it was full of iconic 1960's photos. You exit the bridge and cross to the other side where you get to tour the old stream engine room that powered the bridge during the Victorian era. Just like Disney World you exit through the gift shop.

“Tower bridge tour”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Did this as part of the London pass. Glad I hadn't paid. Very boring - not much and as another review said it seems like they ran out of stuff. I couldn't wait to get out. Basically paid for the chance to walk up 10 flights of stairs. Not fun. Then at the end they make you stand in a long hot queue for 15 minutes to take the elevator DOWN - why not use that on the way up??? Because it ends in the gift shop that's why. Just admire the lovely bridge and skip the attraction.
