London was a thriving port in 1894 when elegant Tower Bridge was built. Designed to be raised to allow ships to pass, electricity has now taken over from the original steam and hydaulic engines. A lift leads up from the northern tower to the Tower Bridge Exhibition , where the story of its building is recounted within the upper walkway.

The same ticket gets you into the engine rooms below the southern tower.
