One of the many places full of history .... but really worth seeing ... and which should be reserved for a few hours ... Take the underground, get off at Tower Hill, pass through subway and Tower of London depict you in all its splendor. Worth visiting every corner, every room - The Crown Jewels, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers,... More

A good amount of things to do & see. The Crown Jewels were obviously impressive but the best part was the fantastic stories told by our Beefeater guide.

The architectual beauty can not take away from the creepy aspects of this "castle." I would still go back but this has got to be the creepiest place I've been.

Managed to keep my seven year old daughter entertained for several hours, so for me, that was well worth the 11 pound child entry. This will be a short review as I literally have nothing to add to the already staggering library of tips, insights, and opinions previously proffered.

My adult family had a wonderful day exploring this historic attraction. We visited in the school holidays so it was very busy. My advice is to plan your visit to ensure you see the the major points of interest. To help, buy the guide book which has a handy map of the Tower. Also there is so much going on... More

Great visit to the Tower of London even though the weather was poor. It's been a long time since I went as a child but it didn't disappoint. Unfortunately because of the rain the Yeoman Warders were not running their tours but audio 'self tours' were available for hire. You need a good 2 -3 hours to do the tour... More

The only thing worth watching are the crown jewels. Nothing much interesting or exciting otherwise. Too expensive for tickets as well.

Well maintained, history in it's best !! visit each and every building, you will not regret it at all, freon the jewels, to the tower itself and the canons outside, we enjoyed every minute. The attraction is included in London 2FOR1 - so you can buy 2 tickets in the price of 1. another tip is to arrive early in... More

Having read the previous reviews we got here early - well 9.00am anyway.. We walked virtually straight in and also went straight to see the crown jewels as recommended by others... again there was not a queue at this time.. When we were leaving there was a queue for about 30 mins.. We saw the poppies which was really beautiful... More

A disappointment. On the day in July we visited, there were over 100 hundred people trying to follow one Beefeater to hear the stories. Clearly should have had more Beefeaters available. Just too many people on the grounds at one time. The Crown Jewels were interesting.There is no "Tower" to speak of. The museum was fairly good. It is a... More
