Tower of London FAQs

Plan on a minimum of 3 hours to see the main highlights of the Tower of London – including the Jewel House, the South Lawn, the Yeoman Warder. You can always stay longer within operating hours if you wish.

While the Tower of London is one of London's top tourist attractions today, it's got a lengthy (and sometimes bloody) history.

The Tower of London has served as a fortress for William the Conqueror, a prison for the likes of Elizabeth I, Lady Jane Grey, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Guy Fawkes, and was even a royal zoo.

At over 1,000 years old, the Tower of London is one of the oldest structures in London. After William the Conqueror's victory in 1070, he began the unprecedented construction of the Tower in the center of London.

London expanded around this significant structure, so you could say the Tower of London is at the heart of the city.

Right on the north bank of the River Thames, it's located right across the river from Tower Bridge, another iconic London landmark.

Our exprerience was very good. We visited London Zoo which was excellent and Trasport Museum where we find old buses and trains. Our kid (3 years old) was excited there. Also we used Hop on Hop off it was free. You must have much patience at the havy traffic at London roads.
