Walk through the Tower of London and you walk through history. So much to see here. From the Crown Jewels to climbing the stairs at the Bloody Tower where prisoners lived and died. To where Ravens still sit on park benches at the same spot where beheadings took place. It's a walk through time and history. Found it amazing. Don't... More

The Tower of London is one of my favourite venues in London. Have been several times and never tire of it. The Beefeaters are great for explaining things and have a wonderful sense of humour. I could visit this venue every time we visit London, which is annuall. The history is fascinating albeit a bit gory, but certainly a place... More

The tour guides at the Tower of Londons are excellent. They keeps everyone's attention with their entertaining delivery of the history of the tower. I'd highly recommend a tour to get the full experience and hear about the history and some of the gruesome events that took place here. It was also great to get a good close up of... More

find it that We were underwhelmed by the Tower of London. We visited in December 2014 so just missed the poppies. The cost is reasonable (around £20) but just didn't it that interesting. Displays seemed in need of upgrading. It is good to say you;ve seen the Crown Jewels but I would say thats about all. Save your money, and... More

Great to just wander around and check out the various buildings. There are long queues for getting into some of the buildings. I enjoyed talking to the various staff that were in costume and ended up learning lots of interesting historical facts.

Had a great morning at the Tower. The highlight was the free guided tour with one of the yeomen of the guard. Not only informative but very entertaining, had everyone laughing as he managed to make fun of all nationalities and ages! You could easily spend the day looking at all the exhibits and buildings.

Spend the day here and make the most of it by talking to the Warders about the exhibits. Don't miss the wall walk, the less famous towers and the interactive stuff for children in Mint Street
