Check out London's most famous bridge and explore its glass floor, historic rooms and museum, cruise around the city with a sightseeing trip on the Thames, and enjoy afternoon tea for two at the up-market Butler's Wharf with this packed Tower Bridge Exhibition with Afternoon Tea at Browns and River Rover Cruise for Two experience (phew!). The Tower Bridge Exhibition was first opened back in the 1980s, and now, more than 30 years later, it's got a glass floor giving you a stomach-dropping view of the bridge and river below, meaning if you're lucky you might even see the bridge's bascules rise to let a ship pass by underneath. There's also a small museum, Victorian Engine Room and a collection of historical pieces spanning (pun) the bridge's 120-year-ish history. You'll also be able to enjoy a quintessential afternoon tea at Browns in Butlers Wharf, just a hop and skip away from the bridge, where you can expect a selection of finger sandwiches, oat cakes and brioche rolls with a selection of tasty fillings and toppings, home-baked scones with cream and jam and a selection of mini desserts. With a day's sightseeing on offer on your river rover cruise too, this is a fantastic London day out for two.
