I have been here before but not reviewed. This time I thoroughly enjoyed what we managed to see. The crown jewels are just stunning and I love being able to walk along the walls and see the grounds. However I wish we knew how long...More
We took an evening tour, limited to about 30 people, and the rest of the grounds were empty. Our host, Yeoman Warder J. Donald, was fantastic and we really felt like we were getting a very personal look at a wonderful place. Seeing it at...More

Fascinating place. Best know for the for the crown jewels and beheadings but so much more. Amazing collection of old armor and weapons of all types. You will even see a part of the original Wall of London there. Would go back again.
I must admit I didn't know much about this place beforehand and only went because my friend recommended it. I am so glad I went though. It is so full of history, drama, theatre and so close to Tower Bridge, which makes it easy to...More
Fascinating attraction that is a must see in London. The tour by the Yeoman Warders or "Beefeaters" is a must. The Crown jewels (assembled from many lands), as with most things that glitter, are interesting. The different towers offer some interesting glimpses into the past....More
As it is so with most of England this is another monetized attraction. Even so, it is a must see. There is much to see here. The dungeon was surprisingly small, but the rest of the attraction was chock full of armor, and all kinds...More
Went on a free Yeoman/Beefeater led, guided tour when I arrived at the Tower of London. Said Beefeater was called Gary. Oh my gosh he was amazing. Funny, knowledgeable, playfully disrespectful. To start the day laughing so much put a smile on my face for...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.
