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.

Much to look at and a must for firsth trip to London
We loved this tour! Our Beefeater, Mark, was wonderful. He was funny and knew how to keep the crowd involved and entertained while telling us about the history of the buildings. We are really glad that we got him and would highly recommend the tour!
The Tower is awesome all by itself, but the Beefeater tour really made the day. Our guide, Dave, was excellent! He provided tons of interesting and detailed information throughout the Tower grounds, and his wit added that little something extra. Highly recommended!!
A great place to visit. But make sure that you have plenty of time to explore. Definitely start with the beef eater tour.
GREAT DAY AND BEEFEATER TOUR IS A MUST!
My husband and I really enjoyed our day here.
There is a lot to do and see and a lot of history.
Quite a few people trying to see the crown jewels and can be quite rude and pushy.
Loved the Crown Jewels!
Completely worth it! Absolutely fantastic!!!!
Very exciting thing to do in London
