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 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.

To see even more, consider upgrading to the flexible and convenient Royal Palaces Pass. Valid for two years from purchase, this pass offers skip-the-line access to the Tower of London, Hampton Court and Kensington Palace. Explore some of England’s grandest landmarks at your leisure.

Very good, although when we went there was no queue to purchase the tickets anyway so we just walked straight through, but I can imagine when there is queues this would be beneficial, given that there is no additional cost to purchase these tickets over the standard ticket, I would recommend. I would also advise going later on in the day to avoid the queues.

The castle is amazing and has a very rich history. I recommend doing this in the morning because you can easily spend a whole day here. The Beefeater guard tour was amazing and well worth coming back to the entrance for.
