The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Get the beefeater tour!
Oct 2021 • Family
I can't recommend the beefeater tour especially with beefy409 (on Facebook), it's a brutally detailed and endlessly entertaining and informative hour long tour you can't do without.

Brilliant day out! Really enjoyed this, it was interesting. I loved seeing the crown Jewels, they really are stunning. I think it was worth the money we were there over three hours.

Must see.

All the history of England in one location. Make sure that you take the "Beefeater's" guided tour. He was a wealth of history information.

Great visit - really enjoyed our time here.
Oct 2021
We’ll worth the money - we spent just over 3 hours here yesterday & could have spent longer but had another attraction booked. Chris our tour Beefeater was amazing, funny & knowledgeable and an hour with him passed really quickly. Crown Jewels - able to get really close & admire the amazing crowns. Lots of steps & cobbles & my knees are complaining today - but it was so worth it. Lots of school groups yesterday, but still relatively quiet & able to see everything without queues - visit this autumn if you can.

Great historical building (and no one lost their head)
Oct 2021 • Couples
What more could you ask for, Beefeaters, sentries wearing bear skins, Crown Jewels and so much more
If your visiting and want historical England then a castle is a must on your trip.
There will be queues and bag searches but once through the gates you are transported back to yea olden times.
Book a tour with a Beefeater or take the audio tour to make the most of your visit
From torture chambers to Royal bedrooms there is so much to take in
Allow at least 2 hours

The spectacular Crown Jewels
Oct 2021
Wonderful attraction especially seeing the Crown Jewels. I was lucky to go on a lovely autumns day and with a lack of tourists could spend more time enjoying the displays. Anyone from the UK should take the opportunity to visit now with less crowds and more time to enjoy.

A great day out for the family, just a shame it is so expensive that many won't get a chance to visit
Oct 2021 • Friends
A brilliant day out the beefeater tour is well worth it and as well as a great knowledge of history they have a great attitude to children asking relentless questions. We all had a brilliant time the only down side would be the price of admission which now means a typical family may not be able to visit, which I feel is a shame. But other than that a excellent day out you will not regret going.
