St. Paul’s Cathedral 

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late seventeenth century, St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the world’s most beautiful and best-loved buildings. A potent symbol of the life of the nation, its stones have absorbed the hopes, fears, sorrows and joys of generations; an enduring symbol of both the past and the present. Majestic, timeless and atmospheric, St Paul’s welcomes many thousands of visitors through its doors each year for services, concerts, debates, educational events, performing arts and sightseeing. Recently transformed by state-of-the-art restoration techniques, the light flooding the internal space of the Cathedral highlights the luminescent Portland stone and brings mosaics, carvings, paintings and sculpture to life.

Visitors and worshippers can witness Wren’s original vision and see his Cathedral as crisp and magnificent as the day it was completed. Gazing up into Wren’s crowning glory, the lofty and awe-inspiring Dome of St Paul’s, is just one of the highlights of a visit to this remarkable Cathedral. But of course, the pinnacle of any trip to St Paul’s has to be the winding journey up the spiral staircase to the Whispering Gallery to sample its unique audio effects before travelling up and out to the Stone and Golden Galleries, which afford a panoramic view of London that is second to none.

Tower Bridge Exhibition

Over 100 years ago, the Victorians built a bridge that has become one of London’s most famous landmarks. High level walkways were built to allow people to cross the Thames whilst the Bridge was lifted to let tall ships sail past – Tower Bridge

Today these Walkways act as viewing galleries, giving visitors the most spectacular views across an ever changing London skyline.

Walkways & Exhibition:
Visitors enter Tower Bridge Exhibition via the North Tower. They are then transported by lift to the top of the Tower (47 metres above the Thames) where they have a unique opportunity to see the Bridge’s steel skeleton from within. A short film explains the history and provenance of the Bridge and then there is the chance to admire the spectacular views – from both covered Walkways.

On the east Walkway there are fantastic views of the Docklands and from the west Walkway you can see the new GLA building, the Tower of London, St Paul’s, the city, the Pool of London and Big Ben and the London Eye in the distance.

Interactive computerised kiosks and graphic panels explain the significance of the views to visitors, as well as providing more information on the history and building of the Bridge. The interactive material and graphic panels are written in seven languages and an audio loop for the hard of hearing is also in place for the video show. There is another film to view in the South Tower before descending for the short walk to the historical Engine Rooms, included in your ticket price.

Victorian Engine Rooms:
These provide a fascinating insight into late 19th century engineering. Installed for the completion of Tower Bridge in 1894, these huge, and beautifully maintained, coal-driven engines were used to power the thousands of bascule Bridge lifts performed until 1976. Although lifts are now operated by electricity, the original steam engines are still in place. The Engine Rooms give visitors a chance to experiment with models demonstrating the technology behind the Bridge. There are also some amazing photographs of  Tower BridgeTthroughout its lifetime – including a revealing picture of the heavy steel structure of the Bridge as the stone cladding was installed over it.
