Start with the breathtaking view from a top Tower Hill. It is amazing day and night. The tower is one place that I highly recommend taking a tour rather than wandering on your own. The Yeoman Warders cram 1000 years of history in an entertaining and memorable way. (Spoiler Alert: There is a good bit of blood and gore with talk of beheadings and such so keep that in mind if that's problematic for your group). My advice is to not shortchange yourself on time here and don't just visit the Jewel House and run. I like to mill about and see things I've not noticed on previous visits. I always manage to stumble upon a friendly Yeoman who is happy to take a few minutes and share information not part of the tour. e.g. Last time I was just sitting and watching the ravens and a Yeoman asked where I was from. When I told him Pennsylvania, he showed me where William Penn once lived and told me about his imprisonment at the tower.
