Tower Bridge Glass Walkway

We visited the Tower Bridge and walked across the spectacular glass floor across the high-level Walkways. A stunning and slightly unnerving view of London life, from 42 metres above the River Thames!

The Walkways also offer stunning panoramic views of London for those too jittery to look below.

Looking down we spied red London buses whizzing over the Bridge, while unsuspecting pedestrians strolled below.  River vessels sailed under us and we had the magical experience of the bascules being raised beneath our feet but even if you missed that, you could download the app “Raise the bridge”, which we had done but never used.

The glass floor measures 11 metres long and 1.8 metres wide and consist of panels weighing 530 kilograms each!  Wow!  A magnificent feat of engineering.
