Experience the remarkable architecture and age-old traditions of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge on a 3-hour walking tour of historic London. Arrive early to view the official opening ceremony of the Tower of London Beefeaters, take a peek at the Crown Jewels before the crowds arrive, then tour the legendary White Tower and hear the tales of torture and execution that the Tower is notorious for. Finally, head to the Tower Bridge Exhibition, where you can learn about the 120-year-old bridge and enjoy panoramic views over London.
We loved the tour, early morning before crowd. We saw the beefeater guards open the gates which allowed us a head start to see the crown jewels. The tour leader was informative and attentive, really enjoyed the details of the Tower and its history.
Meeting place for the tour was easy to find, the fact that you get in first and see the key opening ceremony and then the crown jewels was a bonus, the tour is good value and tne tour guide was exceptional, full of enthusiasm and great overall knowledge
Opening time was a great time to visit the tower. We got to enjoy the opening ceremony and get to the crown jewels before the crowds. The guide was knowledgeable and pleasant and our group was small enough that we could enjoy. Climbing tower bridge was a new experience for me, despite many trips to London. It was my son's favorite activity in the city. Great views and exciting.
Hi Ralph, Thank you for your review. As you know Ireland is a country where we enjoy four seasons in one day, some say in one hour. As mentioned in our tour literature and from Tourism Ireland Tips for Visitors we recommend that all our guests come prepared for all types of weather especially the rain. As our city is small and of Viking origin we have battled with invaders and with the weather for centuries. The rain is an aspect of our beautiful country that you grow to appreciate hence our extraordinary "40 shades of Ireland" national slogan. I'm sorry you didn't like the rain but we are delighted to hear that you loved the tour content and the guide.
