Tower Bridge Is Reopening This Saturday
Good to see you, old friend

This Saturday (4 July), Tower Bridge will open for the first time in 108 days. And no, we're not just talking about its bascules.

The glass walkway will be open once more. Do yoga at your own peril

Sir Horace Jones' Thames-spanning masterpiece — which first opened to visitors in 1910 — reopens with increased health and safety measures at the weekend, inviting people to explore its two towers and the glass walkway that links them — a dizzying 42 metres above the Thames. Ticket prices also include a trip to the Engine Rooms.

The Engine Rooms

If you're a resident of Southwark, Tower Hamlets or the City of London, you can also visit Tower Bridge for just £1: more details here.

The news comes as London cautiously begins to reawaken in the ongoing pandemic. Other institutions due to open in the coming week include the National Gallery, Barbican Art Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts.
