Overview

Highlights

  • See the authentic Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom safely protected within the Tower's fortifications
  • Keep an eye out for the famous guardians of the Tower of London, the Yeoman Warders, more affectionately known as Beefeaters
  • The White Tower (which gives the Tower of London its name) contains the Royal Armouries and its fascinating collection of armor and weaponry

Description

The site of political scheming, bloody beheadings, and the home of the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is a terrific place to spend a fascinating – and slightly eerie – day.

There's plenty to explore here at the Tower of London. It's been everything from royal residence to mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and the holding place for the Crown Jewels – a function it still serves.

You'll obviously want to check out all that royal bling, but there's plenty more to see.

The White Tower holds, among other things, Henry VIII's XXXL suit of armor in the Royal Armouries collection. St John's Chapel, on the first floor, dates back to 1080, making it the oldest church in London!

Be prepared for tales of intrigue, imprisonment, execution, torture and other gruesome thrills.

Insider tip

Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in the United Kingdom) will fall. Keep an eye out for the ravens who roam the grounds.

I enjoyed loads of interesting objects and fascinating historical facts. The Yeoman Guard in their traditional vestments were a pleasure to see and the buildings too. Plus I don't remember...
I enjoyed loads of interesting objects and fascinating historical facts. The Yeoman Guard in their traditional vestments were a pleasure to see and the buildings too. Plus I don't remember seeing so much gold and precious stones under one roof so I can not recommend the Crown Jewel room enough!
