Overview

Bypass the long lines at the Tower of London and make the most of your tour through this dark and infamous complex. View the remarkable Crown Jewels and visit the White Tower, Traitors’ Gate and Tower Green, where Anne Boleyn met her grisly end. Choose to explore on your own or follow a ‘Beefeater’ guard on a guided walk. An audio tour is also available for an additional fee.

  • Entrance ticket to the Tower of London including the Crown Jewels
  • Save time with faster entrance to this iconic London palace-fortress
  • Discover London’s bloody royal past at the White Tower, Traitors’ Gate and Tower Green, where Anne Boleyn was beheaded in 1536
  • View the Crown Jewels, the spectacular, still-used symbols of the British monarchy
  • Visit the Bloody Tower, where the ‘Princes of the Tower’ were murdered; walk along the battlements and see the legendary ravens
  • Enjoy a complimentary Yeoman Warder ‘Beefeater’ tour or audio-guided tour (own expense) on entry
  • Upgrade to a Royal Palaces Pass for faster entrance to the Tower, plus entrance to Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace

Experience the Tower of London’s long and stormy history. Make your own way to the Tower and enjoy priority 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 priority entry to the Tower of London, Hampton Court and Kensington Palace. Explore some of England’s grandest landmarks at your leisure.

Very historic and interesting. You can stay as long or short as you like. Great view of tower bridge as well.

Easy to get our ticket- you will have to go to the ticket area to get a ticket before entering FYI. The tower of London is amazing- make sure you have a few hours at least to go through it all.
To be honest, I am not sure what the Beefeater part entailed- We didn't see any of that and it really didn't explain it. I do recommend this to anyone going to London.

Very Cool. Would get to Crown Jewel Line early. We waited 10 Minutes, but later in the day the wait was 1 hour.

A must do for any visitor to London. Make sure to do the Beefeater guided tour - ours was fantastic and each time you learn something new.

Having this ticket purchased before our trip was the cat's meow! We still needed to stop by the ticket office - but we got to go in a much shorter and quicker line to exchange our voucher for the actual tickets. I highly recommend the Beefeater Tour - you get to go into the Chapel and hear history. The Crown Jewels were awesome to see, as was the Bloody Tower. I highly recommend Viator before you go!!
