What to look for at the Tower of London

Few buildings have played a more pivotal role in London's history than its Tower. Boasting a millenium's worth of treacherous tales and host to the exquisite Crown Jewels, it survives as one of the UK's most popular tourist attractions. Keep an eye out for these...

Ravens

Fun fact: If the ravens ever leave the Tower then it'll fall down! OK, perhaps "fact" isn't the word, but these birds are so important that they even have a designated guard!

Beefeaters

The Tower of London guards are commonly known as Beefeaters, and they're more guides than guards these days. Call them Yeoman Warders instead for preferential treatment!

Crown Jewels

The Jewel House boasts the monarchy's most exquisite treasures, including the Imperial Crown. Admission is included with your Tower of London ticket.

Execution site

Despite the Tower's grisly reputation, there were relatively few executions. Most of the heads rolled on Tower Hill to the north, where the old scaffold site is commemorated.

Ghosts

OK, this is a tough one, but some famous apparitions include Anne Boleyn and Henry VI! Sightings have dwindled recently, leading to the belief that ghosts don't like tourists...

Tower of London: Our Tips

How to get there?

Near Tower Bridge, the Tower of London's nearest Tube station is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines. It can also be reached by taking the DLR to Tower Gateway.

How long to visit?

There are 12 acres and a lot to see within the walls of the Tower of London. History buffs could easily spend a full day there! Although you could feasibly rush through it in three hours, we'd recommend setting aside at least six to do an official Beefeater tour. Some areas, such as the chapel, can't be accessed any other way!

How much does it cost?

Tower of London tickets normally cost £22 (with concessions available). However, admission is also included with the London Pass, which comes with the added bonus of not having to queue!

What People Are Saying About Tower of London

Very good commentary throughout journey.

It was for my Mum's birthday and her and my dad went on our end years ago so it made them very happy.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting London

I enjoyed the tour specially since I was alone in London and wouldn’t have visited all these places on my own. Marc our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the places we visited.

A genuine fantastic experience! So much unexpected.

I knew nothing about this tour, but thought it would be spot on for entertaining 5 teenagers and kids on Halloween holiday week. As soon as we got on the bus, we were caught by the atmosphere and let it go for the most unexpected experience. Everyone enjoyed it 100%. Kids said that was the best part of their holiday. There is a lot happening in the bus, and you might not have the same amount of sightseeing than other tours. But who cares ? It is so much fun!

Really great tour with Gio!! definitely recommended!

Since the rest of our small group cancelled their booking due to a delayed flight, we were lucky to have a private tour with Gio! Others might have cancelled the event, but he took the 2 of us on an awesome tour through London. He really took his time to answer all of our questions and the way he talked about the city was fun and informative at the same time. Would definitely recommend taking a tour with him! Thank you Gio for making 6 hours quite unforgettable and for always offering to take pictures! :) Oli & Bettina
