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.

We spent the entire day visiting the Tower of London and still didn't have enough time to see and enjoy everything there. We liked not having to stand in a long queue to get into the grounds.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

When you are in a city as full of history as London, you do not want to queue in long lines to enter. We really enjoyed the Tower and all of the exhibits.

Phenomenal experience. Lots to see and do. I would highly recommend the Beefeater guided tour. Very interesting and entertaining. If you want to see the Crown Jewels, prepare for a wait - lines are long.

We loved this tour although we decided not to participate in the free Beefeater Tour as it was very busy, a large crowd which made it difficult to hear the gentleman. We did purchase the audio guide and made good use of that. It is a fascinating building with loads of history and great views of Tower Bridge as well. Give yourself a good 3-4 hours to really explore the place.

We enjoyed our Tower of London tour through Viator since this was our first visit to London.
The lines were long so having pre-purchased them expedited our entrance which was very
helpful in making the most of our time and our day. We really had a great time on the included
Beefeater tour. The guides conducting them are witty and full of entertaining stories about the
history of this place. Don't miss! Seeing the Crown Jewels was a once in a lifetime--lines to get
in, but they went fairly quickly. Lots to see and do, the earlier you get there, the better. It gets really
busy mid-day. I would book again with Viator.

Our Beefeater tour guide, Mark, was amazing. We overheard other Beefeaters giving tours and no one came close to Mark.

There is much to see and do at the Tower of London, beyond seeing the Crown Jewels...which were very well displayed along with the historical significance of each jeweled piece. The Tower of London is a must see, but you need to give at least 3 hours to the adventure. Tickets worked well!
