EVENTS: PICK OF THE WEEK
Tower Bridge Valentine's Day Mon Tower Bridge, London SE1
Saturday 12 February 2005
Couples - or singletons of a masochistic persuasion - will be invited to ascend the original Victorian staircase of Tower Bridge, and will be rewarded at the top with two glasses of champagne and a spectacular view from 120 feet above the river. The glass-covered walkways overlook the City to the east and St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and the Monument to the west. The organisers are happy to remind visitors, who may get carried away with the romance of the occasion, that the walkways are carpeted, just in case they have plans to go down on one knee.
