Valentine couples invited to ‘take the plunge’ at Tower Bridge

LOVERS are being invited to ‘take the plunge’ at London’s iconic Tower Bridge on St Valentine’s Day on February 14.

The metaphor for ‘getting hitched’—not plunging into the icy Thames—is being used to promote an evening of romance and live music on the high-level walkways 140ft above the river.

The champagne corks will be popping against the backcloth of the London skyline, the twinkling night sky and unparalleled panoramic view from Canary Wharf to Westminster.

Organisers hope the Big Question will also be popping and lovers decide to get engaged, so they are offering a chance to win Tower Bridge as a free venue hire for their wedding.

Tickets are �15 each (over 18s) online from
