Explore London and enjoy Afternoon Tea for two at the up-market Butler's Wharf with this packed Tower Bridge Exhibition River Rover Cruise for Two experience.
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 butter brioche rolls with tasty fillings, 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.
