Over the weekend of 29th and 30th June, the exhibition walkways and boiler rooms will be open for the token price of £1.25, which will also include a a one-off specially designed souvenir bookmark.
There will also be a range of anniversary souvenirs for sale on the day.
If you’ve ever wondered what Tower Bridge could have looked like, a brand new installation on the piers of the Bridge, ‘Tower Bridge – What If?’ offers a glimpse at some of the alternative river crossing designs presented by over 50 architects and engineers to the City of London’s special committee.
And, eagle-eyed visitors to the Bridge will see gold flags flown on the control cabins of Tower Bridge throughout 125th anniversary celebrations.
In the walkways, there will be a new photographic exhibition showcasing rare archival images and new photography taken from the official 125th-anniversary book.
All for £1.25 over the weekend.
You cant book in advance, so it’s a case of getting up early to get in before the crowds.
