It was A WELL PLANNED half day visit TO THE TOWER OF LONDON made special by the BEEF EATERS GUIDED TOUR. THE TOWER is well mapped with directions well pointed out and every museum in the tower is worth visiting. wish had more time to spend at the tower. The Royal jewels were exquisite.

A must see attraction when visiting London. It never ceases to amaze how really interesting the Tower of London is. The crown jewels are unique & truly amazing. The armories are spectacular. The Yeoman guards are truly amazing, well worth going on their tour.

Make sure you do the free tour offered by the beefeaters! Not only is it informative and interesting, but also hilarious. We had Billy Beefeater and he was fantastic. Everyone was hanging on his every word. So much to see and do you can easily spend hours here. So much history, and also great to simply see and experience. Don't... More

This exemplifies English tourism at its best: well managed visitors and a beautifully maintained site of quite exceptional historical interest. Some of the buildings are so well maintained as to look quite ‘unreal’ – like Disney copies – but this is no fake! The whole place is full of interest, and we were pleased to see children there being introduced... More

..... didn't go in so don't know if that's worth it. Was a bit shocked with the entry fee from 18 pounds! View from outside was okay but not all that, loved the walk toward the bridge along side the Thames tho

The Tower of London is excellent value and a really great day out. Make sure you give yourself the whole day to see everything. The crown jewels should certainly be on your list and the wall walk is a must.

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.
