The city of London will forever be associated with the so-called Swinging Sixties, with the capital having played a major role in driving the social, cultural and political change that took place across the world during the 20th century’s most iconic decade.

Simply entitled The Sixties, this incredible collection of images will be in place on the bridge’s west walkway from March 28th to December 31st, giving tourists and locals the chance to enjoy them while cross the famous landmark on foot.

Comprised of 26 large panels, the exhibition will include photographs of several of the most influential people, places and events that helped to define the spirit of the decade.

Among the celebrities whose images will be on show are the likes of fashion model, singer and actress Twiggy, as well as several of Britain’s biggest actors of the time, like Michael Caine, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

The display will look at all aspects of society, ranging from music to politics, and from fashion to sport.

Other famous faces included in the collection are Formula One World Champion Jackie Stewart, Pink Panther star Peter Sellers, and groundbreaking comedy duo Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, also known as Derek and Clive.

Tower Bridge is perhaps the most recognisable landmark in London, not to mention the most famous bridge in the world, so visiting this monumental structure is always a good idea when you’re in town. It can be reached in about 20 minutes from the Montcalm Hotel, with the nearest tube station being Tower Hill.
