I love going to historic places, so I am biased. Between the Beefeater tours and the Crown Jewels on display this place is my favorite place to visit every time I visit London. I never miss it.

Always declined to pay the high admission on previous family visits to London, and only went in this time because it was included in our London Pass. The replicas of the crown jewels display was very memorable, and the rest was not so much. Glad...More

We took our grandchildren 6 and 7 and took part in a Beefeater Guided Tour - John was terrific - good fun and good stories. The queues were longer than we expected but overall the experience was very good.

I was able to get in at end of day and they had stopped guided tours but it’s eady to do oneself. Fascinating piece of British history.

The tour is fantastic. Must do Beefeaters tour. If your going to see multiple palaces, look into getting into the Royal Castle Society.

The views from here are amazing, the bridge opened for a cruise ship coming in while we were on it, great sight for the kids.

If you want to see the entire property, plan on spending a good 4 hours there. The last guided tour leaves at 3:30 sharp but they are only with you for the first 30-45 minutes. We didn't go on the guided tour because you can...More

You can just go straight in. Guided tours by employees are only offered at certain times. I believe it is on the website. Enjoy!

A Beef Eater tour may scare them as the content is story telling around certain events throughout the towers. I think it depends on how animated your Beef Eater is and how descriptive they get.
