Visit to Tower of London

After breakfast, make your way to the Tower of London. It’s really easy to reach, and just a few minutes walk from Tower Hill underground station.

Highlights of the day

  • Rich history dating from the Norman Conquest
  • It has undergone amazing restoration over the centuries, including damage from the Blitz
  • Used by Royals through the years as a refuge and powerbase
  • The Tower is still home to her Majesty’s Crown Jewels, on display for visitors to see
  • The Beefeaters are tasked with the job of guarding the jewels, as well as acting as tour guides for the attraction

Tower of London

Despite the Tower of London’s grim reputation as a place of torture and death, within these walls you will also discover the history of a royal palace, an armoury and a powerful fortress. Don’t miss Royal Beasts and learn about the wild and wonderous animals that have inhabited the Tower, making it the first London Zoo.

Discover the priceless Crown Jewels, join an iconic Beefeater on a tour and hear their bloody tales, stand where famous heads have rolled, learn the legend of the Tower’s ravens, storm the battlements, get to grips with swords and armour, and much more!

With a fantastic location next to Tower Bridge, you will need your cameras ready to take in the great sights.

There are plenty of places for food and drink both within the Tower and in the immediate vicinity.
