Overview

Within the ancient Fortress, the Tower of London, visitors can gaze up at the imposing White Tower, tiptoe through a king’s medieval bedchamber and marvel at the priceless Crown Jewels. Hear bloody tales of the Tower told by the Yeoman Warders; stand where famous heads rolled and discover where prisoners and exotic animals including a polar bear were kept. 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.

We were lucky and it was a beautiful sunny day on our visit. Enjoyed the changing of the guard and the Crown Jewels. Lots of visitors that day but by purchasing the tickets online saved us considerable time. Highly recommend the tour.

brilliant, just too many steps , isnt a place for those who find it hard to get up or down steps, which is a shame, we had to give up on seeing a few things due to steps, but staff and Beefeaters were very helpful, and very polite and made you feel the most important person there.

The printed voucher tells users to go to St Katherine and Wapping site to exchange voucher for tickets to the Tower. This is NOT necessary. You can take your voucher to the group sales booth at the Tower itself and get entry tickets. Also, the voucher does not allow you to enter directly through group entry - rather you still have to stand in line to enter. The Tower itself is a wonderful experience.

The Tower is well worth visiting, however the La Vacanza Travel instructions to redeem for ticket at the St Katherines/Wapping imaginary address is misleading and we encountered many La Vacanza Travel customers wandering around in the rain looking for the redemption point.
Go directly to the Group Bookings Ticket Office at the entrance to the Tower for your tickets. We were informed that the Tower Ticket Office has complained many times to La Vacanza Travel and been ignored.
Also note that the Crown jewels and Beefeater tours are included in the general ticket prices and do not require a separate payment so you are not being offered anything extra upon entry

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.
