A definite MUST visit place. Prepare at least 3 hours for a throughly enjoyable walk about. My only concern would be for people with leg or knee issues then this wouldn’t be a place for them as there would be lots of climbing stairs, after...More
DO NOT FAIL to tour the Tower of London and be sure to take one of the tours led by a Beefeater (warden). They are full of information you won't find in the history books and can be very entertaining. You'll see where several famous...More
I have always wanted to visit. Yesterday despite being the end of October the sun was shining and I finally got to visit. Just wow what a privliage to be able to be able to walk around. We spent five hours here and I still...More
The big attraction here for many is viewing the Crown Jewels. I would advise arriving at 9:30 and joining the queue for the 10am admission. Once you’re in, turn left at the Traitors Gate/Bloody Tower, head up the hill and turn right for the entrance...More

Good to hear the stories and learn about the what happened ( and what really happened!).
After our tour we were able to spend as much time as we...More
Visited and had a Tour by Yeoman-Warder John. He was interesting to listen too and fun as he kept with the theme. John was really knowledgeable and answered any questions that I had.
The rest of the tower was interesting and full of history, I...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Dear Omaha, I have not known it to sell out, however it was very busy the day we went. If you can pre buy your tickets I would recommend you do so. As you know the Beefeater tour is great and a not to miss. There is a lot to see, and I think it would be wise to arrive early and for sure give yourself at least three hours to see everything...we got caught a little short of time because we only got there about two hours before closing. We experienced about a 30 minute wait to see the crown jewels....so if you see less than 100 people in line, that is the time to go. Hope you have an enjoyable day!

Allow 2 hours to look around the Tower of London. If you can go first thing in the morning it opens at 10am. The queue to see the Crown Jewels isn’t so long in the morning. If you are doing the Original Tour ( hop on hop off bus) buy your ticket for the Tower of London from the bus company saves queueing for tickets. You can then cruise down the Thames to the Houses of Parliament ( Big Ben, Westminster Abbey , ten minute walk to Buckingham Palace). River cruise (40 minutes) is included in bus ticket. Go to the Tower of London prior to 3pm as there no entry after 4pm but an hour isn’t enough time to look around.
