Yes, it's a bit pricey and the lines are long...but there is only one Tower of London, and only one set of Crown Jewels. There is a ton to see here - some of it a bit spooky - all of it historic. Plan to spend several hours here. Beefeater (Yeoman Warder) tours looked amazing, but I arrived about an... More

I've visited the Tower of London twice now, and it is honestly one of my absolute favorite sites I've ever been. I spent an entire day of my vacation, BOTH TIMES, on this site. There's a dining area, there's so many things to do and see. There was a super interactive exhibit about who killed the princes in the tower,... More

We had a guided tour at 2.30 on 21/2. Think it was John? The tour was brilliantly engaging. He got everyone involved and my two children aged 6 and 9 were enthralled. Plenty of details of blood and guts! It was a great way to gain better insight into the history of the tower and an hour very well spent!

The Tower of London is an amazing place to visit & certainly my favourite site in London. Almost a thousand years of history including information of past kings & Queens, trials, prisoners, beheadings & torture. A tour with the Beafeaters is a must, their humour entwined with historical facts & stories of bygone times is superb. Of course no visit... More

If you like history, this is the place for you. If you're not that much of a fan... The audio guide was really old, not really helpful at all and i kept getting lost with it. Overrated

We had a great time touring the castle. This history behind it was really intriguing and there was plenty to learn. I would definitely recommend the guided tour because they make it really entertaining and animated.

There is so much to see at this one attraction, we didn't even get a chance to see it all. So beautiful and interesting. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Although the ticket price is really high22,50-25,00 £, We decided to visit the tower. We entered and heard the yeoman guide start his story. We usually don't really like guided tours but Jason made it all worth while! Hè was really funny but told a lot about the history of the tower at the same time. After the guided tour,... More

The route around this historic site is well thought through, although I do think the historical information is a little lacking...seems more geared to hoards of tourists shuffling through with no emphasis on those who'd really like to understand the history. Be prepared to queue for the Crown Jewels, but obviously a must see. The attraction is well maintained and... More

Been a couple of times now there is always something new to see. Accessible from underground or walking. Close to the river and affordable eateries.

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.
