Three Billy Goats Gruff
Bridge fun for younger children, with activities and a popular story.
If you live close enough to London, why not make a visit to the most famous bridge in England – Tower Bridge. It’s free to walk across and you might be lucky enough to see the bascules of the bridge lift up to let a boat pass through. If you visit the bridge’s own website at www.towerbridge.org.uk, you can find out when the bridge lifts are programmed to take place.
There is also an exhibition to visit (there is a charge) where you can watch films about the building of the bridge from 1886-94 and get the chance to walk through the high level walkways across the River Thames.
