If you have a spare hour to pass in London and you dont mind heights, then it is definitely worth having a look at the Tower Bridge exhibition.
Although the children were not particularly interested in the historical information they loved walking across the glass walkway!
It was amazing to look down at the tiny people, cars and boats below.
We also visited the engine room which can’t really fail to impress with massive working engines and clear explanations as to how the bridge lifts. There are also some interactive exhibits that the children found fun.
Taking a child with autism to the Tower Bridge Exhibition?
They offer Autism Friendly Early Openings and also regularly offer family tours and special activity days. All details here: http://www.towerbridge.org.uk/learning/families/
It is very high.
There is a lift to get up.
There is a concession for disabled visitors and a carer goes free.
You can see all the cars on the bridge below and all the boats on the river.
The price for the Tower Bridge Exhibition is reasonable if booked online at £8.30 per adult and £3.70 per child. It is also possible, if booked in advance, to use Tesco vouchers as payment for this activity.
