We took my friends there as they were visiting us & they have never been to the tower before. I haven't been for years, & I must say the jewels & various artefacts on display are mouth watering to say the least. You wouldn't think...More
Toured the London Tower with family this week and WOW what an amazing experience! In our first trip to Europe, this had to have been one of the most memorable experiences of our trip! Not to mention, our tour guide, Clive the Yeoman Warder aka...More
I have been to the Tower about 5 times over the years and its history never fails to amaze me, We took the FREE guided tour with a warder, each warder has his own person in the history of the Tower so you could three...More
A great place to visit, the best way was to join the tour which starts just inside the entrance. The tour guide, Steve, made the trip interesting and fun. The way he told us the history with stories of past events at the Tower was...More
We were excited to go to this but if I had to choose I would rather spend my money on going to one of the castles then do Tower of London. The Crown Jewel's exhibit is cool but it's pretty short. You can get good...More
The tower was magical, it felt like i had traveled in time.
My personal recommendation is getting the tour with one of the Yeoman Wardens, the men and women who care for the tower, which is included in the ticket price. It made the experience...More
Fantastic tour by the Yeoman Warder (beefeater). James made the tour fantastic. Thanks James!! A lot of history and some great humour. You get a appreciation of the history and events that took place over the many centuries and all the different roles the site...More
Full of rich history, various interesting exhibitions. I recommend you take the audio guide instead of taking the live tour. The live tour goes fast and is so popular, the group is large and it makes it hard to hear the guide properly. We abandoned...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Dear Omaha, I have not known it to sell out, however it was very busy the day we went. If you can pre buy your tickets I would recommend you do so. As you know the Beefeater tour is great and a not to miss. There is a lot to see, and I think it would be wise to arrive early and for sure give yourself at least three hours to see everything...we got caught a little short of time because we only got there about two hours before closing. We experienced about a 30 minute wait to see the crown jewels....so if you see less than 100 people in line, that is the time to go. Hope you have an enjoyable day!

Allow 2 hours to look around the Tower of London. If you can go first thing in the morning it opens at 10am. The queue to see the Crown Jewels isn’t so long in the morning. If you are doing the Original Tour ( hop on hop off bus) buy your ticket for the Tower of London from the bus company saves queueing for tickets. You can then cruise down the Thames to the Houses of Parliament ( Big Ben, Westminster Abbey , ten minute walk to Buckingham Palace). River cruise (40 minutes) is included in bus ticket. Go to the Tower of London prior to 3pm as there no entry after 4pm but an hour isn’t enough time to look around.
