It's got it all; the Crown Jewels, armour and weapons. Stroll along the battlements and check out the bridge. Lots of interactive stuff.

Surprised by how big the Tower of London is. Thought we would be in and out in an hour but actually was there for 4 enjoyable hours. Favourite exhibition was the Crown Jewels, disappointed that some of the jewellery wasn't on show, didn't realise it was part of the queens personal collection. Not a suitable place to visit if unstable... More

The tower itself is a sight but it was absolutely gorgeous to see it littered with poppies. I did not venture inside I just enjoyed the marvel of the exterior of the building.

I had a fabulous trip to Hampton Court Place on 25th November. I deliberately chose the out of season / winter period though it was a gloriously warm & sunny day even without the hordes. I've never been before so it was a genuine treat being in London, and as part of my 5 Palaces Membership (which I'd recommend getting).... More

If you visiting London and interested in history you should visit, it probably will take a good half day of your time. I would suggest you to visit early at it gets congested later in the day
