This place is amazing. So much to see and do. I´d say calculate more time than you think not to have to stress through it and having to leave feeling you didnt see it all. I highly recommend taking a guided tour with one of the guards and dont miss out on the Crown Jewels!

A cold, very wintry day for this visit to one of London's prime attractions. This place has so much history associated it will prompt a great deal of post visit reading, if you're into heritage. Tip! If you intend to make a return visit and/or visit Hampton Court (and other royal palaces) go to the welcome centre and join HRP... More

I can't image going to London without visiting the Tower of London. It makes history come alive, especially if you're a fan of the Tudors.

If you're at all interested in old England, this is the place to go! Saw costumed characters playing out their roles wonderfully, heard fantastic stories, albeit some were quite icky. Loved touring inside the different buildings (crown jewels were a favorite) but I really enjoyed the church and the history in it. Certainly well worth a second trip through as... More

Our entrance to the Tower coincided just as a guided tour was about to start. We joined the tour and found it excellent. The Beefeater (Bob) was funny and very knowledgeable and gave us a brilliant tour of the Towers that lasted just under an hour. After the tour we began exploring on our own, now familiar with the grounds.... More

Having the Yeoman show you around explains a lot and makes the visit a lot more personable. The tour guide who showed my family the grounds had a lot of jokes and was very entertaining. Definitely worth visiting.

Amazing attraction and must see when in London. It takes longer than you think - give yourself plenty of time to explore. So much history and brought to life so well, utilising technology. Top tip - take a bottle of water. And get there early if you want to avoid long queues - especially for the crown jewels.

A must to see in London, a mix of frill, scare, and excitement into history. Worth it even though the 25 GPB may be a bit steep !! Enjoy !

Good day out. You need a full day to go round but well worth while. Not the cheapest day out but lots to see. If you can get a Yeoman of the guard guided tour you will find this entertaining. Even the souvenir shop is worth a look and not over priced.

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.
