This fascinating exhibition explains the nuts and bolts of Tower Bridge. If you’re not technically minded, it’s still fascinating to get inside the bridge and look along the Thames from its two walkways. A lift takes you to the top, 42m above the river, from where you can walk along the east- and west-facing walkways, lined with information boards. A new wow-inducing addition is the 11m-long glass floor here of a dozen see-through panels, with views plunging to the river below.

There are a couple of stops on the way down before you exit and continue on to the Victorian Engine Rooms, which provide the real mechanical detail and also house a few interactive exhibits and a couple of short films.
