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.

Great place. Lots of people there but it did not feel too crowded. We really enjoyed it but only had 4 hours allocated. We could have stayed all day, there was so much to see.

Tower of London

About: Tower of 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.

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.

No trip to London is complete without a Thames River cruise. Get the lay of the land on the first day of your trip and sail through Central London to experience a unique view of the London skyline. Different Thames cruises offer both one-way and roundtrip options on a variety of routes with commentary from an experienced skipper, with sights including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, HMS Belfast, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. If you fancy capping off your stay in London and want to sum up your favorite sights over a pint with dinner (and more drinks), there's an option for that, too. Looking for more action than a leisurely Thames River cruise? Opt for a speedboat tour for an exciting, one-of-a-kind way to experience the lively city of London. Or, use the Thames River cruise as a main mode of transportation as you hop-on and hop-off all about this classic European city.
