Make your own way to the Tower of London and meet your guide. Then, start your Viator VIP London tour by heading inside this historical fortress-palace before the doors open to the general public.

Once inside, accompany your guide to meet up with one of the tower’s famous Beefeater guards. Your Beefeater will then take you on a guided tour of the complex, showcasing the highlights of this 11th-century building and its grounds.

As you explore, hear how the tower has served as a royal palace, fortress, prison and execution site, and be treated to the spectacle of the opening ceremony, where members of a military escort march around the tower with the Beefeaters to open the gates.

Stroll along the East Wall Walk for views down over London’s streets, head inside the haunting White Tower and look for the jet-black ravens that have strutted around the complex since the time of Charles II. The king believed that the tower would fall if the birds ever flew from the grounds. In addition, enter the Jewels House to ogle the Crown Jewels — the priceless symbols of Britain’s monarchy.

Having explored here, stroll to nearby St Paul’s Cathedral, the magnificent domed church designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1708. Head into the hushed Triforium, an area typically closed to the public but open to you.

Wander around to see high points, including the St Paul’s library or Geometric Staircase, familiar to movie fans from its starring role in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Take in the wonderful views toward the nave, and then visit the Crypt and famous Whispering Gallery. 

Your tour concludes at St Paul’s when you say goodbye to your guide.

Please note: The visit to Jewel House to see the Crown Jewels is self-guided.
