Experience the Tower of London’s long and stormy history. Make your own way to the Tower and enjoy priority 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 priority entry to the Tower of London, Hampton Court and Kensington Palace. Explore some of England’s grandest landmarks at your leisure.

A great day out, highly recommend.
, Sep 2020
Really enjoyed our tour of Tower of London, took us about 2 half to 3 hours to get round and not everything was open, loads of great history to see and read about, great to read about all the different kings that stayed there and who built what when there. Crown jewels are great to see and really recommend the Tower of London to go and visit.
London visit

Go direct

Just buy the tickets at the desk from Tower of London itself. No queues due to Covid. The Viator ticket was a real pain, we had to go backwards and forwards to the group booking, and the staff were so helpful but said there are often problems with the Viator tickets. Also it still advertises beefeater tours which aren't allowed due to covid.
if in London don't miss this site

spent wonderful day much to see great views of London Bridge. ordered tickets online picked them up at entrance go to group ticket for pick up. well worth the visit

Spectacular!! Great historical information given by Beefeaters, and the actors in the Medieval tower! Mid March id the time to visit as weather is not miserable and crowds are low. As a North Carolinian, I was particularly interested in Sir Walter Raleigh’s walk and study and garden.
Just a regular ticket to the Tower of London

The tour isn't really a tour. It's merely a way to get your entry ticket in advance for pick up from the group ticket window. I assume the group ticket window has shorter lines than the regular ticket window, however on the day I went (a chilly Friday morning in early March) the regular ticket line was very short. The Beefeater tour, as other reviewers have mentioned, is offered on the half hour to anyone already in the museum and is free. So you don't need a special ticket for that at all. The Crown Jewels tour is also free to anyone who enters the museum, and this ticket does not get you in any quicker than anyone else. It is strictly an advance ticket with the possible benefit of a shorter wait to pick up your tickets.
Symbol of the UK

French would have help... Change of the guards was interesting. And the jewels impressioning! Wheater was also nice.
Interesting and fun

Enjoyed the flow of the tour. No Beefeater tour was available due to in climate weather, that was the only disappointment. Learned so much about English history.
, Feb 2020
Disappointing visit. Beefeater tour was good, the Yeoman was humorous and informative, without that it would have been even more disappointing. Not value for money.
