We couldn't decide at the beginning if we wanted to go into the Diamond Fund however it is not disappoint and I would certainly recommend it to anyone. It might not be to everyone's taste and it's not a part you'll spend hours doing however it was something I would have been disappointed to have missed. The room is to... More

Ever visited the Jewelry in the Tower of London? Well you won't be surprised by the size of diamonds but you will be shocked by the quality of artwork which is often worth more than just the bulk size.

For those of you trying to figure out how exactly to get in here, maybe I can offer some tips. First of all, as you probably know you're going to need a ticket to the armory. Your best bet is to visit the diamond fund before you visit the armory itself. Enter to visit the armory at your allotted time.... More

The most beautiful items you've ever and will ever lay eyes on. Worth the 500RB. Would highly recommend going after you've seen the main Armoury exhibition as you can in at any time and are not restricted to times.

It was pleasant enough to look at huge and shiny rocks for 30 mins but I was not blown away. There was zero signage in English. If you speak Russian, it would probably be more interesting. You are let in only on the hour, with a Russian tour guide. Buy tickets INSIDE the armory up the stairs.

Just go to see some of the beautiful diamonds in this exhibition. It is quite small but definitely worth the ticket, which you can only buy from inside the Armoury.
