Visit the Tower of London
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Royal Palace and Fortress, also known as the Tower of London, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London.
The Tower of London is well known for the Crown Jewels, the Beefeaters (the Guards, also called Yeomen Warders) and the ravens, but attractions like the White Tower, the Bloody Tower and Traitor's Gate are also worth a visit when you are at the almost-1000-year-old site.
Enjoy a free Yeoman Warder tour
Your admission includes a free Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) tour for those who arrive early. Yeoman Warder tours take place every half hour throughout the day, but these guided tours cannot be pre-booked and fill up quickly, so plan to arrive early.

Fantastic 4.5Result from 4 customer reviews
This was wonderfully informative and beautifully done. Please buy your tickets before hand. As you can then avoid the terrifyingly long lines. I did this. Also, although it was recommended to follow a Beefeater, I would recommend that more be put on duty, as each tour had at least 65 people (no kidding). We ellected to stay ahead of the large groups and do things out of order. We read thing on our own, and although we love a good tour guide, I was not about to be trampled. Really, add more guides! Otherwise, this was an amazing exhibit and not to be missed.
I have long been interested in British history, particularly the Tudor period. What a thrill to actually walk in the footsteps of Ann Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, and Katherine Howard, to name but a few of the unfortunates to lose their lives at the tower. The Beefeater tour is well worth it but take some time to walk around and explore and just soak up the mystery and the history of this amazing structure.
I missed this on my first trip to London, so I made sure to see it last week. It was fabulous and we had a great experience buying our tickets online with the fast track. A few tips : definitely do the the guided tour - it takes just an hour and then you can go explore. The Beefeaters are fantastic, funny and super knowlegable. Also, it can be chilly so be prepared and allow yourself at least three hours.
It is indeed a very interesting 'must' site in London. The free orientation tour was awesome. The only drwaback is the price (same as any other attraction in that city) and the crowds. Try to avoid the fast food offered just outside as it is a miserable experience. By the way, the purchase process of the tickets was fast and easy.
