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.
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.
This tour was great - well worth it. We spent 4 more hours looking around ourselves - so much to see in the Tower.
Definitely worth going on the Beefeater tour and not just wandering around. The guides are very knowledgeable British army vets who live on the grounds! They give a great history of the castle and chronicle the many things that have happened there. The crown jewels are great too, obviously!
Highly recommend and price includes visits to 3 palaces also.
Really helpful staff. Great tour and value for money.
The Crown Jewels!!! This was a visit we were glad we included into our trip!
Very very interesting history, amazing building, and the jewels and other military displays were mesmerizing.
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.
