Commenting on the video, one person wrote: "Pov you also live in London and just found this out."

While a second said: "I wanna do this soooo bad."

And a third added: "Did it back in 2018!! Loved the experience! I got a sticker as I was brave enough to jump on the glass."

Meanwhile a fourth wrote: "I don't live there, but I didn't know about this."

Some were a little spooked by the glass floors however, which are 42 metres above the River Thames and 33.5 metres above road level. Another added: "My vertigo says 'negative'."

While one said: "I could never."

And a third said: "My fear of height says NOOOOO."

Tower Bridge was built over 125 years ago to ease road traffic, with the bridge open for the public to visit since 1982. As well as the glass walkway, visitors can also discover the history of the bridge via an exhibition, as well as the Victorian engine rooms which are home to the steam engines that once powered the bridge lifts.

The landmark is open daily from 9.30am until 6pm, with last admission at 5pm.

Adult tickets are priced at £10.60, while children's tickets can be purchased for £5.30 and under 5s are permitted entry free of charge. You can also purchase family tickets from £18, which includes two adults and up to four children.

Meanwhile, community tickets - for residents of Southwark, Tower Hamlets or City of London - are just £1, while students can enter for £7.90, as well as disabled visitors and those over the age of 60.
