Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Tower Bridge  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

Have you ever wondered what it's like to go behind the scenes at Tower Bridge?

The Engineering Tour will start off by explaining the Bridge's design and how it was built, and give you some spectacular views from the high-level walkways (including a view through their new glass floor!). You will also see the original steam pumping engines and boilers in the Engine Rooms.

But it's the second part of the tour that makes it worth the money -- this will take you into some of the areas that are normally out of bounds to the public. One of the Bridge's Senior Technical Officers will show you the Bridge Control Room, the Machinery Room, and the immense Bascule Chambers below the water level, where the roadway sits when the bridge is raised.

Craig has never been on this actual tour, but he has written a review of Tower Bridge, including the view through the glass floors. You can read it on his London blog.

Note: This tour has steep stairs and confined spaces.
