Tower of London

London, England
4.8 / 107
The fortress, standing on the north bank of the Thames, is over 900 years old. The tower is known as a prison for nobles and prisoners of royal blood. From time to time he became the residence of the monarchs. At different times, the famous humanist Thomas More, the wives of Henry VIII Catherine Howard and Anna Boleyn, the “bloody” Queen Maria Tudor and many others visited the castle. Only in the middle of the 20th century did the Tower cease to function as a prison.

We visited twice whilst in London and found the morning is extremely busy although it’s a great atmosphere when bustling with people from all over the world it does make it quite cramped and takes a lot longer to walk across. You have to try th.. Read more »
Fascinating history, guided tours are amazing and definitely worth while so you can learn more about what you are looking at. Lots of information around the tower though. Make sure you look at the map so you don't miss any sections as it can get.. Read more »
A must-see while in London. Purchase your tickets online in advance. Otherwise, stand in line to purchase and then queue again to enter. The Crown Jewels are magnificent and will be a 3rd queue to stand in. The rest of the site is a self paced tour... Read more »
A great day out. Its worth getting there for opening and going straight to see the Crown jewels. That way there will be minimal queues and you may get to spend longer in the crowns room than you would later on. The rest of the Tower is great and an a.. Read more »

Really enjoyed our trip to the Tower of London. There was so much to explore and see. Went early as it can get busy and you have to queue to see the crown jewels. It's a great place if your into history.
Can't recommend a trip to the Tower of London too highly. It's a really great day out. At first the ticket price of £32 each appears very expensive, but trust me, it's real value for money. You get to see so much real history, to.. Read more »
Went with a tour group and only had an hour to spend. Not enough time to explore all the history! The highlight is the Crown Jewels which are fabulous and overwhelming. Unbelievable how many diamonds encrust each piece. Would like to know how hea.. Read more »
At 10 am you have tour at the entrance. The lady will explain the history of the tower. They are very experienced and represent one of the oldest gaurd group in the world. They need to be in the army for 22 years before they grant them this job! Amaz.. Read more »
Great place! The crown jewels were amazing. I highly recommend that one takes the audio tour experience. The audio guide deepens the experience so much more. Bonus for our visit was that it was halloween and there were ghosts in the area that one cou.. Read more »

Amazing tourist attraction of this wonderful place that had a dark side over the history of London-England, but it remains as one of the most visited places nowadays since the Royal Jewels are guarded here. The Royal jewels are amazingly displayed, a.. Read more »

Was an excellent and educational day out. Spent about 5hrs in here exploring everything to do. It’s a little on the expensive side but if you make a day out of it it is worth it. The Crown Jewels were also magnificent to see.
Let's just say I was there yesterday and took 218 photos. It would have been more but they obviously for smart reasons don't allow photos on the Crown Jewels portion. Definitely worth the cost of admission, and this was my second trip to .. Read more »
Beautiful and full of so much history! A great place for families and tour groups. Many placards giving the history and explaining historic events throughout the towers. My favorite thing was the crowned jewels. They were beautiful - full of pomp and.. Read more »
Went as early as we could and basically walked in. Spent about 5 hours seeing the sites. Did get audio tour. Would recommend it. It was very intuitive, unlike other attraction you don't look for numbers to punch in. They are segmented clips, alo.. Read more »
Over 1000 years of history. A must visit. It's one of the top world culture heritage sites to explore. The tower has an impressive size and appears smaller from outside that it actually is. It takes min 2.5- 3 hours to visi, with deep dive into .. Read more »
Admission was a little steep but totally worth it. We paid under £30 per person, but it varies by date and what website you purchase through. We bought tickets in person and not in advance. As soon as we walked in there was a beefeater start.. Read more »
I remember visiting Tower of London when I was a child. Don’t know if a lot has changed, but all I could remember from back then, is a jewels room. I remember standing in a big queue to see them. But guess what, I went there now and Tower of Lo.. Read more »
It is a very cool experience. You get to step back in time, seeing things from a long time ago. There is a lot of history and information to read and take in, so many cool things. I would recommend buying tickets in advance for 9am. I was dropped of.. Read more »
A must see in your London visit and amazing place to visit. A great history of Brit. A crown jewel is one not to miss but no pictures allowed. Lots of walking required to walk around probably won't help buggies or wheelchairs due to lot climbing.. Read more »

Certainly a must see if you are traveling to London! The history of the Tower is hard to comprehend when you consider that the place is older than the United States. Lots of history to take in from the jail cells, torture machines, to the tower, th.. Read more »

Great history lesson, lots of walking, tight spots so child strollers will struggle on most of the castle. Crown jewels are breathtaking, no pictures allowed. They could benefit from offering children's crowns for sale at the end.
I had an absolutely fantastic experience. I originally did not care to go because I assumed it would be somewhat boring and too touristy. It was definitely touristy, but not at all boring. There was a lot to see, many very well put together exhibits... Read more »

Well preserved and presented. Amazing! Glad I saw this incredible historical landmark. Recommend a visit - but even more so go and see the Tower Bridge workings inside tour. This I found really interesting.
Lasted visited the Tower of London about 25 years ago, I really enjoyed my time back with plenty to see and do. Took breaks through the day in the cafe and the coffee shop. It was nice to visit the new additions and stroll round in a leisurely way. H.. Read more »
This is the absolute best place to get the most history about the UK in one stop. Really quite spectacular. The crown jewels by the time we viewed them at the end, beautiful but turned out not to be the highlight. Knowing that Henry the VIII was s.. Read more »

A lot more to do there than I thought. Worth doing a walk around with one of the yeoman warders very interesting and funny history lesson. Need at least half a day to explore properly, we only had 2.5 hours as we had to get back to the car park
Amazing place to visit! We had recently come from Ireland and to hear the different pieces of British and Irish history intertwine was really neat! I highly recommend paying the extra bit for the audio tour once you get inside. It helps give you a li.. Read more »

A beautiful historical landmark to enjoy a good part of the day. With it situated next to the iconic Tower Bridge, you can get some lovely shots in the Tower Green. Also a great place to take someone who likes and enjoys History.
A wonderful day out for the family. I attended with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed the historic spectacle that Tower of London offers. We were given a fantastic tour of the Tower by Yeoman Warder Beefy409. The tour was without doubt the highlight .. Read more »

Such a beautiful place with a rich history. Would definitely recommend! Hours just pass as you go back in time. Probably not best for really small kids tho. Great views of Tower bridge
Pretty amazing to see things when it is so quiet. You can really spend time soaking it in. Very cool. Barry the Yeoman was excellent and made our visit even more memorable.
One of my favourite buildings in the country , it’s over 900 years old. Full of history. William the Conqueror created the first fortifications after the conquest of London in A.D. 1066 as the Norman invader lacked support among the people of t.. Read more »

What an amazing place. So much history with appropriate covid 19 measures in place. The beefeaters were amazing despite no guided tours being allowed ( due to covid 19). A truly great day out that the whole family enjoyed
Fantastic visit. My first trip as a Londoner of over 40 years! The lure of a less crowded environment tipped the balance and the family and I went. Worth getting a year membership in order to visit the other palaces and Royal Gardens around London. .. Read more »
