- Tower Bridge was the creation of architect Sir Horace Jones and civil engineer Sir John Wolfe Barry. It took eight years to complete and was officially opened on 30 June 1894 by the Prince and Princess of Wales (the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra)
- In 1982 Tower Bridge opened as a visitor attraction to the public for the first time since 1910. Since then, visitor numbers have grown annually with approx. 850,000 visiting in 2019, which was the 125th anniversary since the opening back in 1894.
- Visit the iconic Glass Floor on the high-level Walkways, which gives visitors a unique perspective of London 42 metres above the Thames. Visitors are able to tread on the glass floor panels whilst traffic passes beneath their feet. It can withstand the weight equivalent to one elephant or two London Black Cabs.
- Tower Bridge is supported and managed by Bridge House Estates (BHE) whose Trustee is The City of London Corporation.
- Tower Bridge is London’s defining landmark and is a proud supporter of the BHE’s charitable arm, City Bridge Trust, generating over £6m a year, which goes towards helping charitable causes across London.
