Skip the line 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.
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.
Our guide was very entertaining. He was so informative but at the same time, so funny. The Tower is smack dab in the middle of London. There are tall modern buildings surrounding it. The tour of the jewels was amazing. So much history and so many jewels.
Great way to start my stay in London!
Had a really fun time on this tour, the Beefeater guides were awesome and funny. Kept the group entertained the entire time.
Definitely recommend! The Beefeater tour is wonderful! We may not have needed the skip the line ticket during the holiday season of the year but we enjoyed the tour tremendously!
My favorite was White Hall...so cool.
Great tour and easy to pick up tickets. Go early!
Got there first thing in the morning and breezed through all exhibits with no lines!
The Beefeater tour was informative and entertaining....a very delightful experience.
A very interesting place. Didn't need fast track tickets in winter. No big crowds so we could take our time looking at the Crown Jewels. The guides were very entertaining. We enjoyed our lunch at the cafeteria
Great visit! I thought that I purchased a ticket where you print off and instantly go through the line however, I was wrong. The ticket I printed off, you had to go to the ticket booth to get it verified and then given actual tickets. For this particular day, it was no big deal because the line was extremely short.
