I only went once, but trust me, you'll feel like you could go to the Tower at least 3 or 5 times. The history between those walls is amazing. You get a beautiful glimpse of the Crown Jewels, which is breathtaking. Definitely I'll go back to London and specially to the Tower of London.

Took my fiance here for her birthday as she'd always to go. The beefeaters do a short tour and tell great stories of the towers history and throw in some good humoured jokes. We did take our 3 yr old which if we went again would probably not take him as he did get bored and impatient. You could easily... More

We went on a Friday afternoon and took advantage of the beefeater guided tour what an amazing and informative two hours the Crown Jewels have to be seen to be believed you only appreciate how amazing they are when you see them close up.

A museum/monument that we have all heard of but possibly not visited. Well next time in London take advantage of the 2for 1 offers for railway travellers and learn of the past. Also the Crown Jewels are really spectacular. Make sure you take advantage of the guided tours offered by the Yeomen.

Lots of lovely shiny things to see, but lots of history to absorb too. Picture with Beefeaters and ravens - then the gift shop!

Mid January visit in the cool drizzle led to almost no queues to get in. We stood at ticket line for less than five minutes. Great place to visit overall. We headed straight for the jewels and had zero line! I can imagine in summer waiting hours to get to them. No pictures are allowed of the jewels. The white... More

The Tower of London is a must see when one visits London as it holds a lot of history for this country. Stay for a couple of hours to enrich your knowledge in history.

A group of 6 of us visited the Tower of London and had an amazing time today. I would highly recommend taking the tour. We had the pleasure of being taking around by Clive who really made our day. He made it so interesting and brought it all to life! Great character with a fab personality. Definitely take the time... More

For the price the visit is very disappointing. The outside view gives enough historical perspective without paying the costly entrance fee to view walls and armour. Could be made far more interesting visit if they took the example of the Churchill War Rooms.

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.
