We visited the Tower during the poppy exhibition. The whole visit was truly amazing. The history behind the site is so intrinsically linked to the country. So many Monarchs have either frequented the site or died there! It is worth the money and an absolute must for anyone who loves history, specially history based around our country. There is so...

We have been to the Tower twice now. And it's always in March. Even tho it's still cool and damp, it seems fitting for the atmosphere of the tower. Amazing location- great place for pics of the tower itself and the tower bridge. The historical aspect is hard to wrap your head around. I do suggest going to the tower... More

Very nice architecture. Must see Crown Jewel. You will get a nice view of tower bridge from inside Tower of London. If you have a student ID, you will get student discount on ticket and audio rental.

Worth a visit, with regular tours given by the Beefeaters. All staff were helpful and informative. There are a lot of steps but the crown jewels are all on ground level. It is expensive to visit. Close to other attractions too.

Get the National Rail 2for1 to save on admission. Wait for the Beefeater/Yeomen to give a guided, informed tour. They are so full of knowledge of history sprinkled with a fair bit of comedy. These gentlemen are true soldiers retired from the armed forces and actually have more than 22 years of service and holding other distinctions. They also reside... More

Though the price is steep, this is a must see attraction in London. We were able to explore multiple tower buildings, see the Crown Jewels dating as far back as the 1600's and enjoy multiple tours. The Yeoman Warders offer tours every half hour. Our tour was animated, entertaining and full of history. The infamous White Tower has some impressive... More

Now let me start off by saying it its a fantastic place to look around and it is worth the visit, but the amount of school children on tours really was annoying especially as they took up all the room in the little rooms and had their phones blaring out with music. Good Place to visit in London though especially... More

I took a walk along the Thames from London bridge to tower bridge. That walk was truly awesome. Quite rejuvenating, full of life. So many visitors were there. I did it bit late in the night after work but still refreshed myself totally. Must place for anyone who goes to London...

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 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.
