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.

Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.

There's plenty to explore here, so give yourself lots of time to roam, but the White Tower is the most striking building. Inside you'll find - among others - Henry VIII's XXXL suit of armor in the Royal Armories collection. Also note that St John's Chapel, on the first floor, dates back to 1080, making it the oldest church in London.

Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Note that the line-ups for the Crown Jewels can be quite long, but if you can stand to wait, it's well worth it. Also: keep an eye on the queue, it sometimes shrinks inexplicably. If that happens: seize the day.

One can't-miss attraction keeps moving around inside the walls. And that's a tour with one of the Yeoman Warders. These men and women (popularly known as ‘Beefeaters’) have been guarding the tower for hundreds of years. Their 60 minute tours leave every half hour and start near the main entrance. Be prepared for tales of intrigue, imprisonment, execution, torture and other gruesome thrills.

A MORBID PAST: The Tower of London has experienced more than a few beheadings and imprisonments. All in all, 22 executions have taken place here - including two kings and three queens (that's a full house!). However, if you're really into the gruesome past, nearby Tower Hill has seen more than five times that number of executions.

Fascinating tour steeped in history and humour by our Beefeater (Chandler?) who was excellent. Why no facility for tips? He deserved a lot. The tower and surrounds are somewhere every Brit never mind all the foreigners should visit.

Really great family day out. Lots to explore as so much history has happened there which you get a real feel for during your visit. There is a constant queue to see the Crown Jewels but it moves quickly & they are worth the wait. Ice cream or cakes from the nearby stall are highly recommended while you wait! Definitely saved money booking online in advance.

We had a very enjoyable day apart from a young lady at the entrance who snatched our tickets while saying "oh give them here" and looked at us like we where dirt. Extremely rude and really didn't give a good impression!'
