Standing guard over London for more than 950 years, the Tower of London is one of the UK’s most popular tourist attractions, with almost 300,000 visitors in July of this year alone.

Situated on a 12-acre complex, with a maze of walls, gates, towers and greens, the fortress is regularly filled with thousands of visitors on any given day, and more so during planned visitor events during the summer.

With such a vast area to maintain, the team at the Tower of London recently invested in a new utility vehicle, to help make the lives of staff easier in the run up to the summer programme.

They sought the expertise of electric utility vehicle specialist Bradshaw, and opted for the Goupil G2 cage body vehicle with a lithium-ion battery to help keep the fortress operating at its very best.

All 100 per cent electric, with zero emissions, Bradshaw vehicles are a sustainable, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solution and are particularly popular among local authorities, industrial sites, resorts and last-mile delivery companies.

As a compact utility vehicle the G2 range is also suitable for roads, offering an ideal solution for customers who have multiple sites which are connected by public highways. Available with pick-up, cage and van bodies the G2 is expertly designed to transport payloads of up to 600kgs, whilst retaining its small and compact size for convenience of use.

Dom Oughton is Maintenance and Facilities Manager at the Tower of London.

He said: “We took delivery of the vehicle just before the summer. We needed a new vehicle to support us during what we knew would be a very busy period, with a programme of high profile summer events.”

Dom said the daily tasks include transporting a range of goods that are needed for events, handling deliveries of parcels to the site and transporting waste.

He added: “We went with Bradshaw as I was already familiar with the company from a previous role. Also, we have a very old electric vehicle of theirs here at the Tower which is probably about 20 years old and still used by our postman.

“It was a very tight delivery for when we needed the vehicle but the timings were excellent with everything smoothly and efficiently. Upon delivery we were given a good brief on the vehicle by the Bradshaw representative and it’s been doing its job very well for us.”
