The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City of London
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.

Ceremony of the Keys - what a wonderful experience. Scott Kelly was our tour guide and he did a fabulous job. He was informative, funny, and very entertaining. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this long standing tradition - it was an experience we will remember for years.

Enjoyable day, plenty to do with informative & interesting exhibits, items well displayed; enough to fill the day.
Beefeater tour was very engaging, I would certainly recommend! Lasted just under an hour so make sure to wrap up warm. Generally staff were very friendly & helpful.
COVID wise, we are asked to maintain distance, wear masks indoors & hand sanitiser is provided. Its also much quieter before lunch.
I was able to get a Gluten Free snack & drink in the café, although I didn't enquire about mains. Plenty of vegan options were advertised.

Second time visiting and only decided to come as there was a spare ticket that would have otherwise gone to waste. Did the beefeater tour. Our guide had a lot of cheesy jokes but otherwise he was okay. Christmas decor was a nice addition but otherwise ore or less the same as my previous visit, though some of the exhibitions had changed. Thankfully I was wearing good walking shoes so no problems walking around for over three hours.

The most amazing, atmospheric place to visit. The buildings are stunning and visiting in January meant there were no queues and you feel like you have the place to yourself! So much history, bought to life in all its bloodthirsty glory by Beefy409 on the guided tour but delivered with a twinkly smile and such a genuine passion for the place and his job. Thank you Beefy, we hope to see you and the ravens soon.

Great day out. Worth every penny. Make sure you take a Beefeater tour.. very informative and entertaining. Its a bit of a queue to see the crown jewels and they could prob use the queueing space once inside a bit better but the jewels are stunning and the ravens and people spotting kept the wait lively. Food and drink as expected expensive and limited choice but adequate. Fun day had by all

We had a great day lots of history and beautiful old architecture. But Yeomen Warder Hardy made the day really special. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and engaging on our tour. We both said it was worth visiting just to listen to him speak!
