This can be a self-guided or guided tour. The tour has many joined buildings, all of which are worth seeing. The Crown Jewels building was my favorite. Photography was not allowed in this building. You can take pictures in most other buildings. You also get a view of the Tower Bridge from some of the buildings.

One of my favorite places in London. Definitely go here if you're interested in British history or history in general. I loved the Crown Jewels and all the background information throughout the tower.

Fabulously history. Make sure you do the tour well worth it. Our guide was the Ravenmaster and he was very funny. A must see when visiting London.

My son was fascinated to see the huge medieval age tower. This tower holds lots of memories and the crown jewel collection is magnificent.

I went to the Tower of London fairly early in the morning. The crowd was not bad but got steadily larger as the day went on. I took the free tour with one of the Warden Guards or Beefeaters. The tour was fantastic. The guard (Jimmy) had his lines down pat. There were many jokes about different nationalities and it... More

The free tour was fantastic. Seeing all the special places inside the tower was amazing. I loved seeing the crown jewels. We had afternoon tea in the restaurant and it was good too. I would visit here again.

There is a lot to check out at this Royal place. It is pretty well laid out for walking. Lots of interesting information and I wish I had stayed to read it all, but my 14 yr old was cold and just wanted to see the Crown Jewels. That was the highlight of this place-just wish we were allowed pictures... 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.
