Excellent tour guides, the Crown Jewels display, the Royal Armoury and torture chamber for the boys. We saved money by becoming members of the Historic Royal Palaces - definitely recommended, as we are effectively getting 15 months unlimited access to all six palaces for the price of one day's admission to The Tower!

The Tower of London is a must-see when visiting London. It contains so much on the spot history including the Crown Jewels, the site of many famous executions, and artifacts. As it was part of a day long tour of London, we didn't get to spend as much time as necessary to see everything, but it was still a wonderful... More

Liked learning about the history, disliked some of the steps you had to climb!!!! Also could not see the queens crown as it was state opening of parliament so the crown was 'in use' as it said in the empty place.

My absolute favorite part of this visit was to see the Crown Jewels. The history in this location is pretty incredible and a site to see while visiting London.

Due to work I have been twice to the Tower of London in the last week (May 2015). To clarify Tower of London is a complex of bbuidling dating from the earliest - The White Tower & the attached St John's Chapel, c. 1080 complete with original barrel ceiling - a fantastic example of Romanesque architecture. This is why the... More

Went to the Tower of London with my wife. Much bigger than you think. There was a lot to see. Very crowded so be ready to wait in lines. Great history. I loved learning about the tower. My wife lived to dungeon area. Worth the visit. Allow at least 3 hours.

Expensive but worthwhile...very busy but managed to get around without any problems .. Visited the crown jewel vaults which were exquisite ..good idea to have a moving floor t make it easier for everyone to see....to see the historic chapel where famous beings are buried was surreal... A good few hours required to see everything on offer...one of those trips... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhoods. 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 neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment 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.
