Absolutely brilliant with Billy the Beefeater! Made history really great fun to listen to.
The best way to skip the lines and get right in to the Tower of London. After you enter, you can choose to walk around with a guided group, purchase the audio guide or just wander on your own. Fabulous!
Again, the Fast Track tickets are advised. The Tower is intriguing; the jewels are hard to envision without actually seeing them- and then you are totally stunned by them. The Queen looks marvelous when she wears them.
We loved everything about the tour. Printing off our tickets at the hotel was easy and we went right in, no lines. Definitely take the free guided tour and hear all the stories and history of the tower from one of the resident beefeaters. Ours, Clive, was fun, energetic and very entertaining!
Loved this attraction. However, be forewarned that while the Beefeater tour is supposedly very good it is included with everyone's ticket (not just the Viator tickets) and they take VERY large groups with them. I have also heard that occasionally in bad weather they really cut the Beefeater tour short. Since I know the history of the tower quite well I explored on my own. Took about 3-4 hours taking my time. It's a busy, popular attraction, go early. I went end of November on a Monday when it was far less busy than usual but I understand usually big queues to get in are the norm. Take your Viator ticket to the group sales window and they'll exchange for proper entrance tickets. Go at the right time of year and you'll pretty much just walk right in :) Definitely worth seeing.
So much to see! Must catch the beefeater tour and hear about all the prisoners and execution that happened there. Fascinating!
It's mostly a self-guided tour, this ticket is just to skip the line. When I went in October there was a line that would have taken about 20 minutes to wait in, but with this ticket I just walked right up to the 'group' line and was able to go right in. The tower of London is just beautiful, has lots of history. I would recommend to anyone, adults and children alike.
Considering the crowds to see the poppies the ticket booth for skip the line and entrance to the tower were well organised and we had no problems.A great visit even at the busiest time.
One of London's must see's! This is essentially buying tickets in advance so you get to skip the queue's at the ticket booth - it wasn't very long when I went, but was quite crowded later on in the day. The tour and crown jewels viewing is included in the entrance ticket regardless of whether you purchase it at the door or online. You DO however need to access a printer to print out a copy of the tickets - I only purchased it the night before my visit and did not have a hard copy - I presumed that soft copies on a mobile phone would be accepted as was my experience with other tours - which the lady at the ticket booth was less than polite about.
