Tickets are now available and must be pre-booked:
- Adults – £5.00
- Over 65s/Students – £4.00
- Children – Free
- Essential Companion/Carer – Free
- NHS Staff, Teachers and Museums Association Members – Free
We will be carefully managing visitor numbers, and tickets are strictly limited so we are asking all visitors to book for the Visitor Centre in advance (the bridge is always open free of charge to all pedestrians and no pre-booking is required to cross).
We’re aiming to make things feel as close to normal as possible but as your safety is our main concern, we are resuming services in a limited, safe and socially distanced way. Our permanent exhibition and shop are both open from Wednesday 9th September, with our tours programme to follow at a later date.
We’ve implemented some new measures to offer the safest, most enjoyable experience possible:
- Reduced building capacity in line with the latest government guidance and sector advice.
- Enhanced cleaning schedules and installation of hand sanitisers at key points
- One-way system with social distancing markers
- Protective screens on the reception desk and shop counter – and PPE for staff
- Training in physical distancing and hygiene protocols for our team
- We have qualified for the ‘We’re Good To Go!’ mark from Visit England to verify that we’ve met government and industry COVID-19 guidelines.
When you visit, please:
- Plan your journey and arrive at your booked entry time
- Have your e-ticket or paper ticket ready for inspection
- Bring a face covering with you, you’ll need this throughout the exhibition
- Make use of our hand sanitiser stations throughout your visit and follow the one-way system
- Keep 2 metres distance from other visitors who are not in your group
- Use the stairs if you are able
- Bring a contactless payment method for shop purchases or donations.
To ensure staff and visitor safety, if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or display any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, we will amend your booking for another day. We ask that you refrain from visiting and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to change your visit date.
We would like to thank you for your patience and support during our closure and we are really excited to welcome you back into our building. However, the closure of the Visitor Centre has had a financial impact on us as part of a Charitable Trust and we’ve had to introduce a temporary ticket fee to contribute towards our additional cleaning costs and staffing.
By purchasing a ticket, you’ll be helping us to get back on our feet and share the story of the bridge for years to come. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Book your visit now through our Eventbrite page.
Please read all the guidance information before visiting us and get in touch if you have any questions about your visit.
