A great place to visit.

The site was very interesting and our tour guide was terrific. If you are a history or military buff, this is the place for you. There is so much to see.

The Tower of London is not just one tower, it is a full complex of an old castle with many things to see. I'd recommend getting there first thing in the morning before the throngs of people and go see the Crown Jewels right away. We explored everything in about three hours. It's also interesting to walk by at night... More

A definite must while visiting London, very historic and plenty of tour guides. The whole visit takes at least 2 hours maybe more at a leisurely pace. The jewels are beautiful. Plenty of stairs to climb and inclines to walk.

What a wicked afternoon. Brought a ticket on the door and walked straight into a beefeater tour! Ohhh and how amazing are beefeaters!!! Knowledgeable, funny and extremely fun! So much to see and do, laced with history! Recommend the scones at the cafe too! So good that I'd love to go again!

We enjoyed to tour which is included and done by the guards. The stories they told were very interesting. We also liked seeing the Crown Jewels.

Touring The Tower will be easier if you go online and get your tickets in advance. Then you know exactly when to show up and, especially if you have fidgety kids, you won't have to wait in line. Taking the Warden/Beefeater's Tour is great because you get all sorts of little tid-bits of information you would miss otherwise. There is... More

Allow 3-4 hours to really experience the Tower of London. Very storied place with many tales to tell. (not all happy endings, however) Did you know the Yeoman Warders live at the Tower of London with their families? Do you know what it takes to become one? Very interesting requirements and I have a great deal of respect for each... More

It has to be on the list if you are visiting London. Many museums in London are free - this isn't one of them but you will get a good bang for your buck and the whole day to take it all in from 9.30 till 5.30. Ticket deals are available but expect to pay around £25.00 per adult. Family... More

At the right locations you can take family photos with the Tower as part of your photo for next seasons holiday or Christmas cards. One of a kind. the Doctor

I thought the entrance fee was a but high for the whole experience but I liked the historical value of the site, there's a lot to see inside and except for the royal jewels queue we didn't have to wait too long for anything. Worth the visit

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.
