A great place to visit in London, all the exhibitions are well maintained and make you learn a lot about English history. The jewel of the crown were also quite impressive, but beware of the queue for visiting! There are also stunning views of the London Bridge and the London skyline from the walls.

On a visit to the capital city this attraction must be visited at some point in your life. Best advice is to take a tour with a Yeoman, they are so informative, interesting and add a sense of humour - thanks Colin. Some of the poppies were still there which added to the visit. Even in the Great British rain... More

This was the third place I went to in London and it blew the other two places out of the water. It was amazing going around and learning about all the history, The best part, by far, was the free tour given by the Beefeaters. Our tour guide was extremely funny and made the tour fantastic. I have never enjoyed... More

The history of this place makes this a must see. Many of the displays and their history can be fascinating, but it may not be to everyon'e tastes. Some of the gory history can be chilling and unpleasant. Being the centenary of the first War, the sight of the Tower surrounded by ceramic Tulips to honor the fallen was truly... More

This place is amazing. The beautiful Crown Jewels and the wonderful architecture make it a brilliant place to visit. There were still a few ceramic poppies on display too, though they had carefully removed two thirds of them.

start at st katherins dock and walk along the thames to the tower, the tower is amazing and historic once you enter through the gates you get sucked back in time and with a little imagination you can re-live those times through stories we have heard and read. There may be a queue but it moves quick enough and the... More

No one does pomp and ceremony as good as the British. It's over 30 years since I last visited the Tower and I really enjoyed the experience although it's not cheap at £22 per adult. The one hour free tour with the yeoman is not to be missed, also the Crown Jewels. We were fortunate enough to view the remnants... More

My wife and I visited the Tower of London on Remembrance Sunday. Not only did we see the fantastic poppy display, we also went into the Tower. Neither of us had been here since we were much younger and what a great time we had. Seeing the Crown Jewels, the armoury, the Yeomen of the Guard, re-enactments, the Ravens and... More

Pro tip - take the tour that starts at the entrance gate, it's the only way to see the Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincula. The site is an excellent collection of buildings and associated exhibits. You can see everything from the Crown Jewels to armor and swords to the Ceremony of the Keys. If you explore the entire... More
