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
We enjoyed our day at the Tower of London! Admission was included with our London pass, we arrived in the am just as it was opening and we headed straight to see the Crown Jewels! It was perfect, we were able to view the jewels...More
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 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
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.
