Tower Bridge continues its 125th birthday celebrations with a series of special light and sound installations in its Victorian bascule chambers.
For three days, visitors are invited down into the cavernous (and usually off-limits) rooms for an hour-long experience telling the story of the people who helped build the world-famous river span, and those who operate and maintain it today. The bridge's first female worker in 1895, a bus which jumped the bridge in 1952, and the Olympic rings hung from the bridge in 2012 all feature in video projections in the show.
The site-specific installation is the work of Guildhall School of Music & Drama and uses an original soundtrack, and actors voicing characters to accompany the images and video projections in the light show. Given how popular a similar installation was at St Paul's Cathedral recently, this is sure to be one hot ticket.
Tower Bridge: 125 Years of London's Defining Landmark takes place Friday 29 November-Sunday 1 December 2019, with several performances each day. Tickets are £20 each and must be booked in advance. Age 14+.
