“Really interesting”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

You could easily spend a day here there is so much to see and do, join in on the guided tour they get you in to the scene very quickly. A great day out and would recommend this one to keep you busy for an afternoon

“Nice day out, but not value for money”
Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice day out with alot to see, but far to expensive for what you get. Cheaper if you book online first.

“Brilliant - such an interesting day out!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were a party of 5 of various ages & I have to say that the Tower of London was a brilliant day out for us all!! We had two young kids and were given (its free) the family trail pack, which had a book, a badge & a pencil - this is mainly for the crown jewels area. There was a floor in the white tower where the kids could answer questions and fire a bow like an archer.The Yeoman of the Guards do a guided tour every half hour & again is free. The only thing I would say is that its not pushchair friendly & the little ones on the stairs can be a challenge but What A Day!! If you book online you can save a few pounds too..

“Amazing place to visit”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

If you like history this is the must see place to visit in London. There is so much history in each and every building. You get to see the crown jewels, armor made for many former kings (including Henry the VIII), any many other pieces of history. Amazing place to visit for any history buff.

“Londoner View”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I remember first seeing this attraction when I first moved to London in January 2010. It was freezing cold and I decided to go with a walking tour group to see the Tower of London.
The history behind the tower is intriguing and seeing the main jewels of the tower is fascinating. Even if you do have to stand on a moving platform to glance at the Crown Jewels.
You would spend about 1-2 hours if you are well planned.
