Victorian Games


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

There's lots of good old-fashioned fun to be had at Tower Bridge during October half term when the high level walkways will once again be the setting for a range of traditional Victorian games.

Tickets to the bridge will include the added attraction of giant dominoes, hopscotch, noughts & crosses, quoits and roll-a-ball, with prizes available for some games.

"The games proved enormously popular at Easter when we first offered visitors to the Tower Bridge Exhibition this extra dimension to their journey back in time," said Tower Bridge marketing manager Chris Earlie.

"They may look and sound easy peasy compared to today's sophisticated entertainment but who's actually ever won noughts and crosses?! There's a knack to winning these games which makes them quite compulsive."

Younger visitors can also enjoy the Guy Fox Tower Bridge Passport, a sticker-based activity free for every child which makes exploring the history of the Bridge fun and helps to focus their attention during their visit.
