Amazing glass high-walkways open - Tower Bridge Exhibition, open 7 days 9.30am-5pm

One of the bridge's two high-level walkways now has a spectacular glass floor. Available in the West Walkway, the glass floor offers visitors a never-seen-before view of London life, from 42 metres above the River Thames. Look down at your feet and red London buses and pedestrians whizzing over the Bridge while river vessels sail under it. Stunning.
