What to look for at the Tower of London

Few buildings have played a more pivotal role in London's history than its Tower. Boasting a millenium's worth of treacherous tales and host to the exquisite Crown Jewels, it survives as one of the UK's most popular tourist attractions. Keep an eye out for these...

Ravens

Fun fact: If the ravens ever leave the Tower then it'll fall down! OK, perhaps "fact" isn't the word, but these birds are so important that they even have a designated guard!

Beefeaters

The Tower of London guards are commonly known as Beefeaters, and they're more guides than guards these days. Call them Yeoman Warders instead for preferential treatment!

Crown Jewels

The Jewel House boasts the monarchy's most exquisite treasures, including the Imperial Crown. Admission is included with your Tower of London ticket.

Execution site

Despite the Tower's grisly reputation, there were relatively few executions. Most of the heads rolled on Tower Hill to the north, where the old scaffold site is commemorated.

Ghosts

OK, this is a tough one, but some famous apparitions include Anne Boleyn and Henry VI! Sightings have dwindled recently, leading to the belief that ghosts don't like tourists...

Tower Of London: Our Tips

How to get there?

Near Tower Bridge, the Tower of London's nearest Tube station is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines. It can also be reached by taking the DLR to Tower Gateway.

How long to visit?

There are 12 acres and a lot to see within the walls of the Tower of London. History buffs could easily spend a full day there! Although you could feasibly rush through it in three hours, we'd recommend setting aside at least six to do an official Beefeater tour. Some areas, such as the chapel, can't be accessed any other way!

How much does it cost?

Tower of London tickets normally cost £22 (with concessions available). However, admission is also included with the London Pass, which comes with the added bonus of not having to queue!

One of the highlights of our London visit

My husband and I booked this tour last minute and would recommend it to anyone heading to London. Borough Market wasn't even on our radar, so getting to see such an interesting and tasty place was great! Steve was a great guide and storyteller :) We were a little skeptical initially about cost, but the amount and quality of food (and drinks!) that were made available to us was well worth it.
