I had viewed the Tower of London from many angles over the years but never gone in and finally did so. It was surprising to me in terms of the size once your inside the walls and historical significance over 1,000 years. Highly recommended!

This place doesn’t need any recommendations. It’s one of the main attractions in London and you just cannot miss it. It is quite interesting for little kids too. White Tower has lots of remarkable things inside for small kids to see and lots of quite...More

The Tower of London is a true British icon. The castle, set at the side of the Thames, directly next to Tower Bridge, really is a sight to behold. With it's huge exterior walls, towering high above the surrounding moat, it really is an imposing,...More

The bloody tower was closed when we were visiting... big disappointment. Large complex of building and things to see. The ticket to get in is expensive

We had very little time in London, but chose this as one of our attractions to stop and spend more time at. We were all so happy we did! This is worth spending a day here learning the history and experiencing the sights.

This is a great "self tour" but you HAVE to get here early. Literally be the first in line and hit up the crown jewels FIRST. The traffic is horrible with all the people now and even in the off season the amount of people...More

This still amazes. It’s totally worth it to go on a beefeater tour, and of course the armour in the White Tower and the Crown Jewels are a given. Seeing and hearing about the ravens and trying the archery simulator were different and worked for...More

The Tower has so much history you really need more than one visit to appreciate what it offers, the food on offer was really expensive though.

The Tower is a time machine. It is amazingly well-preserved and it easily transports visitors back in time. Even as a visitor, you can imagine the horror of being imprisoned here. The cold and dampness feel centuries old. Make certain to visit the Crown Jewels...More

A Beef Eater tour may scare them as the content is story telling around certain events throughout the towers. I think it depends on how animated your Beef Eater is and how descriptive they get.
