If you can, arrive early. Got a quick view of the Crown Jewels before joining the 10am tour with Clive - such an informative and enjoyable hour. Thank you.

The spectacular panorama view of London once you are in the eye. The downside is such a long queue at least 45minutes to one hour before we finally boarded the eye but the view makes up for the long waiting time.

A must do for travellers to London. Our Beefeater Dave was a fantastic guide. A bit too crowded for my liking but it's a top attraction after all. Crown jewels were beautiful and there was much to learn about the history of all 20 towers. A must for those interested in history.

It is worth the wait to take the tour at the Tower of London. Not only is it historically interesting, the Beefeaters make it fun as well. My favourite part was seeing Henry the VIII's armour.

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.
