Hands-on activities in Langdon’s Den
While our Bridge Works exhibition tells a story of history, Langdon’s Den – the lair of education mascot Langdon the Lion – is focused on the future.
Young people are invited to try their hand at a range of permanent activities to introduce them to Rochester’s bridges and hopefully inspire them to be the bridge builders and designers of tomorrow.
- Build an arch bridge
- Handle a lion from the Old Bridge
- Dressing up as an engineer
- Bridge terms quiz
- “How old is the bridge?” challenge
- Jigsaws, brass rubbings, and more
Extra to this, a range of free activity days will take place throughout the course of the exhibition, check back to our family activities page for updates.
Once you’ve left Langdon’s Den, if you’d like to find out even more about bridges, check out the free hands-on bridge activities available on our engineering education website here.
