Best exhibitions in London
Tower Bridge and the Monument
See two exhibitions in London in one with a ticket to Tower Bridge and the Monument. Kickstart your adventure at Tower Bridge and walk across the glass floor, where you’ll be able to look down and see the River Thames, learning about the boats and ships which have journeyed down the capital’s waterways. Once you’ve experienced the iconic bridge, scale the dizzying heights of the Monument. Erected to celebrate the rebuilding of the Great Fire of London, receive a personalised certificate once you’ve climbed the 311 steps to the top.
Royal Observatory Greenwich
With plenty to explore at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, you’ll be able to find out about London’s history as told in the stars. Balance in the Eastern and Western hemispheres at the same time on the Meridian line and experience the past, present and future of space by looking through telescopes. Don’t miss out on the Peter Harrison planetarium, which offers visitors the chance to see how the universe was formed, which opportunities to test your abilities of leading a space mission. So, whether it’s experiencing London on the ground or seeing what’s in London’s cosmos, visit the home of British astronomy in Greenwich this summer. Situated away from the heart of central London, why not take a look at these parts of the capital away from the beaten track.
