Very popular with Foreign tourists, but still good day out for British people visiting the capitol. Housing the Crown Jewels and some very famous prisoners, it's steeped in histrionics and well worth a visit. The tower is particularly good to visit around November. Over the past few years there has been a Poppy display in conjunction with the remembrance day... More

One of the best places to visit in London! There is so much History in there, you can still "feel" it in the air! Try to visit when "The Queen's Gallery of Jewels" are being exposed to the public, because is surely an amazing experience! Um dos melhores lugares para se visitar em Londres! Há tanta história lá, que você... More

What a wonderful place to visit. Be sure to buy you tickets online and collect them from the visitor center to save time and avoid the long lines. It will take you about 2.5 hours to go through the place.

One of the must sees when visiting London. If possible, try to take one of the free tours of the White Tower and/or the Beefeater tours. Also, plan at least a quick visit of the Crown Jewels.

At £25 a pop, it's a place you'll probably only visit once- and it takes a good chunk out of your spending money if you're a couple on a short break! That said, it's an interesting place to visit if you're a history geek like me and we spent around 2 and a half hours wandering around and seeing all... More

I would like to think that the Crown Jewels that are to be seen are the real ones. Even if they ar not they alone are worth the time you will spend here

One of my favoite days during my vacation was spent at Tower of London. It is educational and beautiful. So many things to see here, don't miss any! I highly reccomend getting a map - it is easy to overlook something since exhibits are in various buildings and entrances. We left and found out later there are animals there! Of... More

The Beefeater guided tour was enjoyed by all very interesting and out age range was from 5yrs to 40yrs. Nice interesting place to... More

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.
