The crown jewels, the atmosphere, the view and the amazing history make this spot difficult to skip! I stayed at the hotel right next to the Tower of London and could see it from the hotel too--it is surreal. Definitely something to see!

The Tower of London is well worth the £20 entry fee. Inside, you will find free guided tours (run by the Yeomen, themselves), the British Crown Jewels (absolutely stunning) and the ability to walk around all the walls of this exquisite old fortress. Allocate a couple of hours to do it justice!

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.
