We arrived about 15 minutes before opening and there was already a short line, which moved quickly once the gates opened. We had a London Pass so didn't go to the ticket booth to get a map, which was fine as there were staff going...More

We arrived about an hour after they opened and the line for the crown jewels was down the aisle so we decided to wait. Big mistake. Later in the day it was wrapped around to the end of the aisle and back again to where...More

A great day out. Kids loved the crown jewels and all the medieval history. Amazing view across the river Thames. Food at restaurant expensive but yummy.

This will be short but sweet. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the full experience. The tour was funny and informative and the Crown Jewels are stunning. So much to see and well worth it.

We had fun visiting with the family here. A little bit of everything for everyone. It’s an impressive castle within a castle within a castle.

Make sure to do this tour with genuine Beefeater, the only way to get your pounds worth. Get in Crown Jewels line ASAP, gets long. Not free but is worth paying for, only slightly over priced. Well organized operation, a must see for London.

The Tower is a must-see for London visitors. I have been there several times but this was the first time I ventured into the upper floors of the White Tower. Take your kids up to see the enormous dragon!
