This is a mustn't miss in London. So much interesting history and intrigue, not to mention diamonds the size of a pullet egg! The free tours led by the Yeomen are humorous and informative. Be sure to give yourself lots of time to explore all the nooks and crannies and admire the many suits of armor and weaponry. Arrive at... More

Visited with 7 and 11 year old boys and were there about 4-5 hours and other than being a bit tired there were no moans and groans - think that says it all!! It helped that the weather was great (though a tiny bit chilly) so we were fine wandering around outside. I've always wanted to go here and when... More

It was my husband that wanted to go here. We went with our two children (12 & 9). It was a lovely sunny day in the Easter holidays and we didn't even have to queue, so that was great as we were expecting a long queue. It was an enjoyable day out, made even more so by the lovely weather.... More

Because I love history my review may be a little biased! I remember going to The Tower of London at primary school and was amazed. I went back again recently (I'm 44 now!) and it still holds fascination for me. Great Beefeater guides, knowledgeable and witty. Learned so much history, we had a wonderful day spending over 3 hours there... More

We had a pleasant trip to Tower of London, it is quite expensive (£22 per adult and £11 per child) but everyone seemed to enjoy it. Long wait for the crown jewels exhibition, a few q's around the attraction. Food was lovely but over priced so take a picnic if you can. Lots of history, more to see than you... More

My friend's dad was a Yeoman Warder and they lived in the Tower of London in Casemates. It was always so exciting to me as a child to go and stay there. Tours around what must be one of our most famous landmark are interesting and informative. It gives visitors a great sense of English history and its past glory.... More

I think it is one of the best attractions in London, especially if you are interested in history. The beefeater guides are amazing, so interesting & with a great sense of humour. The crown jewels are amazing. so many fascinating events took place here, it is really steeped in history. Another fun thing to do if you can fit it... More
