Overview

Enjoy faster entrance to the UNESCO-listed Tower of London, one of London's most popular attractions. Bypass the long lines at the main ticket office, and explore this mighty complex, established in 1066. Check out the White Tower, Traitors’ Gate and Tower Green, where Anne Boleyn was beheaded in 1536; visit the awe-inspiring Crown Jewels; and see the legendary ravens. Once inside, explore independently, or take a complimentary Yeoman Warder ‘Beefeater’ tour or audio-guided tour (own expense). Upgrade to include admission to two other London palaces: Hampton Court and Kensington Palace.

Highlights

  • All entrance fees included
  • Ideal choice for families

Make your own way to the Tower of London on the banks of the Thames River. With your entrance ticket, Bypass the long lines at the main ticket office, and head through the group entrance and security into this imposing palace-fortress.

Built by William the Conqueror in 1066, the Tower has a dark 1,000-year history as a royal palace, prison and execution place, as well as a royal mint and armoury. Today, it still stores the British monarch’s Crown Jewels, just as it has done since 1303.

Once inside, explore independently or choose to take an optional audio-guided tour (own expense) or complimentary tour led by a Yeoman Warder or ‘Beefeater’, one of the ceremonial guards. The 1-hour Yeoman-led tours leave from inside the entrance every 30 minutes until the mid-afternoon, and offer a compelling insight into the tower’s history and sites.

See the brooding ravens as you walk around and be swept up by the grim but fascinating stories of the turrets, chambers and buildings around you. Visit the main, White Tower, to see its Royal Armouries exhibits, and enter the Bloody Tower, reputed to be where the ‘Princes in the Tower’ were murdered by an unknown hand in around 1483.

See Traitors’ Gate, through which the arrested Anne Boleyn was brought by boat from the Thames River. Then, walk to Tower Green where she was beheaded in 1536 on the orders of Henry VII, and where a string of monarchs and traitors also met a grisly end.

Step back to Tudor times at the Medieval Palace, where recreated medieval interiors detail comfortable lifestyles of Tudor monarchs such as Henry VIII, and stretch your legs with a Wall Walk, strolling along the massive encircling walls to discover more sites.

Lastly, don’t miss the Crown Jewels, the royal regalia and gems that symbolize the British monarchy. Join the separate queue to gaze at these sparkling exhibits, including St Edward’s Crown, used at coronations since 1661, and the legendary Koh-i-Noor diamond, the 105.6-carat diamond given to Queen Victoria in 1849.

Having explored as much as you wish, take your leave and make your own way back home or to your hotel.

Royal Palaces Pass Upgrade

Want to uncover more of London’s fascinating royal history? Then, upgrade to a Royal Palaces Pass that gives you a priority entrance ticket to the Tower of London together with admission to London’s Hampton Court Palace and gardens, and Kensington Palace, the former royal home of Queen Victoria and Princess Diana.

Your Royal Palaces Pass entitles you to one visit to each of the three attractions and is valid for two years, so you’ll have plenty of freedom to experience each site and discover its enthralling past at your leisure.

Loved the tower of london , but was very dissapointed with tour company , very confusing on how to pick up your tickets and where, and we also paid extra for the part of crown jewels and beefeater tour and this is included in the price of tower, so we should have not paid extra and we did ordering tickets

The trip to the Tower was fabulous - The presentation was the best I ever had
It was an anazing place - you must get to the Crown Jewels early

The Tower of London is so much more than the Crown Jewels! The jewels are beautiful but there’s so much history in all the buildings. We went to every building and enjoyed them thoroughly. I highly recommend giving yourself 4 hours to view everything and go to the Crown Jewels early or that’s all you’ll get to see.

This ticket is for entrance to the Tower of Lonon and does include the Crown Jewel exhibit and a Beefeater Tour; however, your tickets does not provide anything that general admission at the door does not. By that I mean that you have to wait for a Beefeater Tour like everyone else attending, and the Beefeater tours are huge. We dropped out of ours because we couldn't hear our guide. The audio tour (minimal extra fee) was worth the purchase. We learned some interesting history through the audio.

Our Beefeater Guide to the Tower of London

Our guide met us at the gate. There were some 30 people in our group despite it being a grey day that threatened (and did produce) rain while we were there.

Even though this was my second visit to the Tower of London, I was really looking forward to it.

Our tour of the Tower of London

The Beefeater's mix of humor and history even enthralled my 15 year old granddaughtger. I wish I could have had this experience when I was her age for what a help it will be when she gets into her World history classes in a couple of years.

The Tower of London from the outer wall

The Thames once was diverted to fill the moat outside the wall, but the Tower soon was designated a Palace and the property of the Royal Family.
