The work is the most significant change to the Exhibition since it first opened in 1982 and represents a £1 million funded from the Bridge House Estate and City of London Corporation.

In conjunction with the new flooring, Tower Bridge Exhibition has also launched its first ever Augmented Reality App, providing visitors with an immersive 360 degrees experience of the bridge rising beneath their feet

"For the first time ever, visitors to the Exhibition will be able to experience a never seen before viewpoint of London - the Thames, road and pedestrian life, all moving at pace 42 metres below."
