Event Description

Discover London Bridge: a bridge for fools to go under.

The Thames was bridged by the Romans and successive bridges here have been essential to the development of the City of London into a vital commercial centre.

Find out what it was like to cross the river between the houses on the bridge, the entertainments of Frost Fairs when the river froze solid and where to find surviving relics of the old bridge. Even the modern bridge has its secrets, as we shall see.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
