This is a good time filler after Westminster Abbey, if you have a London Pass or English Heritage Pass

This was a short and welcome walk away from the crowds around Westminster Abbey and Parliament. It's small and quick tour, but had knowledgeable and helpful staff. Also, serves refreshments. The best thing: for a few minutes we were the only people in the place....More

We went because it was included in the London pass, but there was very little to see. The tower itself is beautiful but contains only a handful of artifacts and information about them. I would skip this in favor of the full Tower of London

The shop is the only good part of the tower. Bought a lovely fridge magnet. The customer assistant is knowledgeable and provided outstanding service. English Heritage advertises it as '3 recently redecorated floors' and all they are is floors with history facts, which is nice,...More

We didn't really know a lot about the Jewel Tour prior to our trip - however entry was included on our London Pass - and as we were in the area - we called in. It was fabulous! I took so many pictures!

What a gem! It was so interesting to tour through the Jewel Tower. Lovely views of Westminster, incredible history and so uncrowded that you could imagine yourself there at different times in history. Lovely plus that it was included in our London Pass.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
