Great attraction! There is so much history here - from the Normans to the modern day. I spent about six hours there and saw pretty much everything. If you have time I would recommend the yeoman tour - it's free and very informative. Don't be put off by the large crowds for the tour. Mine was huge but it was still very easy to hear everything said. The tour takes about an hour.
I would also recommend getting the audio guide. It is definitely worth the few extra pounds as it gives so much more detail than you can get from the displays alone.
The other thing I would say is dont be put off by the large queue for the Crown Jewels. They are worth the wait! Also the line moves faster than you would expect. It was way past the barriers when I queued up (about 12.45). I was in the building in about 20-25 minutes and all up it took just under an hour I'd say. Once you get inside the building there is still a queue but there is plenty of information about the monarchy and the jewels to keep you occupied.
