The tower was really a fun day. The Beefeater tour guides were AWESOME. They were funny, engaging, and very knowledgeable. We were there with our three kids age 11-19 and they were completely engaged. The Crown Jewels - while we waited on line for 20 minutes, was Well-worth it. This should be number 1 stop on any tourist's list.

Visited on a wet and windy day, but it was still busy. The Yeoman Guard tour is only 45 minutes and doesn't go all around the Tower, but is still worthwhile. Ask them questions, they are the best at their job, and please abide by their wishes if they do not want to be video'd - some just don't like... More

Having the London Pass, we only planned to spend 3 hours here. However, this turned out to be the best visit of our entire trip! It is not just a "tower" of London, but is really a castle like city, that could take all day to fully explore! The authenticity of the place has been fully maintained, and it was... More

wow quite a day. So much to see and explore. go where the lines are least long. Don't get the headset, save the money, it's not too good and that line is long to get them. Lots to see if your into Medieval Times. I went to see The Crown Jewels. OH MY a must see. It is Jaw Dropping... More

The Tower of London is a must-see for anyone visiting London. So much history, fascinating and interactive displays, wonderful tours, and a good method for controlling crowds. Here's my advice: get there early and do the Crown Jewels first, that way you will experience NO lines. Do the regular tours -- they're great -- but don't miss the special tour... More

I visited the tower with a friend along with our two 13 ( nearly 14)yr old daughters. We arrived at about 11am and headed straight for the crown jewel exhibition.we walked straight through the main doors and into the first set of rooms where you may see a short film showing Queen Elizabeth's coronation in 1953.then on to another set...

Admission fees rocketed the sky especially for a place where no members of staff actually interacted with us. A popular destination for many visitors from all over the world and yet inaccessible at some areas for deaf people. Could've been easily improved with BSL guides. Two hours queue for the royal jewellery took its toil. Still a good landmark to... More

The Tower is actually multiple towers inside the fortress. The White Tower is where the Crown Jewels are displayed - but be warned, the line to view them gets very long so come as early as you can and make that the first thing you do. There are suits of armour worn by many people and a collection of weapons... More

The Tower is best done with the available audio guide. It gives you something to listen to while in the queue for the Crown Jewels exhibit. Great history and well done. No need to pay a tour operator for the or any attraction as a tube pass and a 3 day London Pass does the same thing AND let's you... 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.
