What You Can Expect

Tower of London Entrance Ticket Including Crown Jewels and Beefeater Tour

Uncover London's royal past with entrance to the Tower of London

Experience the Tower of London’s long and stormy history. Make your own way to the Tower and enjoy express entry through the group entrance. Once inside, explore independently, take an audio tour (additional fee) or join a 1-hour guided tour led by a Yeoman Warder or ‘Beefeater’. Yeoman-led tours depart every 30 minutes from the Tower entrance. Learn the Tower’s origin story of 1066 and how it evolved from William the Conquerer's stronghold to a royal palace, armory, royal mint, prison and gruesome execution place. 

Pass under the famous ravens that protectively perch near Wakefield Tower and lose yourself in myth and history as you visit the White Tower and its Royal Armories collection, the Bloody Tower and Traitors’ Gate. Hear the tale of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's unfortunate second wife, who passed through Traitors’ Gate in 1536 and was quickly tried for adultery and executed. Walk to Tower Gate, the execution site where Boleyn and many others met their fateful ends. 

Despite its chilling reputation, the Tower of London has also been the cradle for the British Crown Jewels since the 14th century. Get a close-up look at this remarkable regalia, the ultimate symbol of the British monarchy and the centerpiece of coronations since 1661. Don’t miss the famous 105.6-carat Koh-i-Noor diamond!

After you've visited the major sites, stroll along the Wall Walk and head into the Medieval Palace to admire the beautifully reconstructed spaces. Take your time soaking up this cornerstone of English history!

Had a super day walking round the Tower of London and the highlight was seeing the Crown Jewels. i was a bit disappointed with the Beefeater tour as they were very busy and the group was overcrowded 60 people on each tour, could be managed better!!

Love the Tower of London! Since our flight was delayed we were just able to make it there in time for the last Beefeater tour. So worth it!

Great tour well worth the money and the time. Even though it was a rainy day, we were able to easily move between the buildings and the towers to see all the important things. Highly recommend.

We had a great tour and managed to do most things in 2 hours--although we could have spent much longer. Tour guides were highly informed and entertaining! Visiting with family from NY

As everyone says, go early to avoid the crowds, but what an incredible place. You can feel the history as well as see it. The Yeoman Warders Beefeaters are great story tellers. Do not miss this one.

Able to skip the long queues in the morning! 1 hour tour is also very informative, and gives a thorough introduction of towers.
