Amazing experience and one not to be missed. Took my wife and four and a half year old daughter here today for the start of the half term holiday. Such an amazing experience enjoyed by all of us. The crown jewels were amazing and left my wife drooling at the size of the diamonds (I tend to drool at cars... More

There is just so much to do and see at the Tower of London. You really need to plan for a lot of time, as it is easy to get mixed up and turned around. I believe there is a tour guide but we missed that part and hoofed around, backtracking quite a bit. Definitely an enjoyable morning, reading all... More

I have visited tower of London for the first time and I was surprised by the exhibition of the crowns with huge Culinan and Koh-i-noor diamonds, really the biggest single piece diamonds you can ever see. It really blowed my mind. Worth visiting, definitely...

so much to do, pre book tickets if you can, that way you can just walk in and its a bit cheaper too. loads for the kids to do, and for them to interact with, but also plenty for adults to enjoy

I had an amazing time. Steeped in history I was fascinated. I would recommend going round with one of the yeoman wardens as they can provide you with so much information and the chapel where Anne Boylen was laid to rest is really worth a visit

What a place. If you like history you'll love the Tower of London. From the moment you arrive, either by underground, bus or on foot, your first glimpses of the now grassed moat area and outer wall can be breathtaking. I found the staff in the ticket office very helpful and it is well worth the entrance fee. Once inside... More

Well worth the visit. William the Conqueror started building this place in the 1080's and it has been added to over the centuries by successive monarchs. The Tower’s bloody history could fill a library of books but it saw its last prisoner execution back in 1941 of the would be German spy Josef Jakobs who was captured shortly after parachuting...

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.
