Despite being well into my fifties I had never done the Tower Bridge tour before. I was with a group of 20 who all did this tour together. After climbing the 206 stairs (lift u/s) we saw the film which wasn't quite as cheesy as I had feared...it presented the facts in an easily digested fashion for non-techies. For us techies there was plenty to admire in the Victorian structure revealed beneath the Portland Stone skin of the Towers. The walkways afforded spectacular views...Wembley Stadium one way, Crystal Palace TV mast the other. The sun was low in the sky and gave amazing views over HMS Belfast and towards The Shard. The restored but still steam engines were magnificent and, as we left, the bridge opened to let a cruise liner through! It was the icing on the cake of a most interesting experience.
