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...


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!


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.


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!

Get rid of the silver tins lads, its expensive enough

Great Thames trips love it, the narration from the crew was funny, though obviously very well rehearsed, only real gripe is the silver buckets being pushed forward on exiting the boats, the trips are priced high enough, if you use the boat all day, its really good exiting value, but the silver bucket could add £10 to £20 to your day, as a Cornish pensioner I can tell you that this a lot to give away.
River Thames Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise Reviewed by Alan, 10/02/2016

It was one of the most interesting tours I've ever taken.

Our guide, Trevor, was very passionate about his subject and it made us all want to know even more about the "dark side" of London. I'd recommend it to my friends.
Grim Reapers of London - Walking Tour Reviewed by Mathilde, 10/01/2016

really enjoyed, a great relaxed atmosphere.....

My partner and I were one of the first on but got served our food last, the boat was full up which was great to see, we waited along time, would have been nice to have at least been served with a cup of tea while we had to wait last for our sandwiches/scones, mind you when it finally arrived it was lovely, a few more staff would have been better. Have to say though the girls who served us were smashing, smiley and very friendly. We enjoyed the commentry from the captain, he said he had only talked on 2 trips before but did a great job, we could hear better on the way back after most people decided to go up on deck as before it was hard to hear with everyone chatting. Yes we would recommend to our friends, we picked a fab day with the weather.Thank you
