This was a great place to visit, there is so much to see and do we did not get chance to see all we wanted to see, so we will be going back when we next visit London for sure. We got the London pass which is a definite must if your sightseeing through London

Absolutely loved my visit to the Tower of London, it really made history come alive, the whole visit was full of information and captured my attention as well as being fun. The different exhibitions where great and I loved seeing the Crown Jewels past and present. The beefeaters around the tower where very friendly and full of fascinating information that... More

This is one of my favourite places to visit in London. There is history and fun to be had all year long. The atmosphere is fantastic and there is always something new to see. This year they had the Coronation Celebration of Anne Boleyn and it was magical. I strongly suggest that you purchase your tickets at least a day... More

We visited this attraction in August. I recommend that you take a tour with 1 of the yeoman warders. They bring history to life! They know all the details and dates, crown jewels are majestic. Lots to do for all ages a large restaurant and several gift shops. Allow plenty of time to wander around as this attraction is large... More

We hold annual passes to this venue so always something new going on & nice place to eat without paying too much for London. We tend to get a bit bored if we try to see Tower all in one day so it is nice to have annual passes & keep popping back in for another visit.

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT do this tour WITHOUT a beefeater. They are the very best as giving you the detail and stories needed to properly visit this attraction! Also I the crown jewels? Who doesn't want to see those? Just keep in mind they don't let you linger to look at them- you are on a conveyor belt... More

If you get just one small chance to see this truly awesome sight then take it! It really is breathtaking and a humbling experience as a tribute to those who lost their lives in WW1. It's not going to be there long don't miss it

The Tower of London was included with our CIE tour of England and Whales, but we had actually been there a couple years earlier on our own. This was one of the only tours we did on our previous visit, it included a Jack the Ripper walking tour which was interesting. Since it was our second visit we tried to... More

We visited London on this occasion specifically to see the art installation "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" at the Tower of London. When we visited there were around 300,00 of the eventual 888,246 ceramic poppies that are progressively filling the Tower's moat. each poppy representing a British military fatality during the war. It was an awe inspiring sight... More
