Win the chance to control Tower Bridge for its 125th birthday

‘Fantastic Feats: the building of London’ is a celebration of London’s architecture – now you can control it


Happy birthday Tower Bridge! You’ve let us drive, walk and cycle on you – and we’ll let you in on a secret... you look pretty great, too. Yep, part of London’s fascinating cityscape, there’s something very special about this man-made structure.

To celebrate the launch of ‘Fantastic Feats: the building of London’, the City of London Corporation is offering you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to open Tower Bridge. We’re talking about using buttons, levers and more to control the entire sequence that raises Tower Bridge’s two 1,100-tonne arms. Powerful stuff. 

But it’s not just the bridge’s 125th bday that you should be celebrating this year. A salute to the city’s incredible engineering and innovative architecture, ‘Fantastic Feats: the building of London’, features over 50 events throughout the summer, including artists, performers, musicians, exhibitions and walking tours. Props to London town!

To enter, all you have to do is answer the simple question at the link below. Good luck!

‘Fantastic Feats: the building of London’ takes place between May 31 and December 1. To learn more about the event, visit or follow @visitthecity or #FantasticFeats on social media.
