Tower Of London Trips
Plenty to see but quite pricey at the best part of £30 per adult. The queue to see the crown jewels was massive and given they are actually in two or three smallish rooms I think it could be designed to get more people in and out quicker. I'm sure when I was a kid, 40 odd years ago, there was more treasure in there, guess that's the result of years of austerity measures! On a serious note, a shout out to the Yeomen, who were all brilliant and thank you for the service that you have put to qualify for the positions. Perhaps some better signage or better facilities required, noticed large queue for the small ladies toilet near one side while larger one on other side practically empty. Food was reasonably priced, £5 for a hot dog, but £2.20 for a can of Pepsi seems a bit steep. Well worth a visit though
Amazing tour We were lucky to get Bill Callaghan to take the Tour, have to say he was the highlight of our trip to London. He is clearly passionate about his job as one of the Tower Beefeater's and a very funny natural Story Teller..... If your American just remember he is only Joking...... The tour is packed full if historic facts and English Wit throughout and really uncovers the history of such a historic place. Once concluded we wandered around the various Towers and viewed the Crown Jewels which are just mind blowing. They had so much wealth they made a Punch Bowl the size of a bath out of solid gold?!!! Also home to Fusiliers Museum which is also worth a visit to discover the history of this great Regiment of the British Army. A great day and well worth a visit
Obviously, this is a great construction. The glory of Britain is well presented here. Great exhibitions. The walls could tell us lot of stories about the past. There are guided tours (which I prefer to avoid). Tourist friendly. Please don't forget - despite of all the richness, the standard of living of the kings who leaved in this place, was not the same as the one we are used to nowadays. They had gold, but they didn't have toilets :-)
An essential stop for any London tourist. It's a tad pricey, but if you go, DO THE BEEFEATER TOUR when you enter. Wait for it if you have to. I can't imagine what this experience would have been like without our salty, dramatic Beefeater bringing the Tower and its crazy place in England's history to life. Great experience, and my kids (10 and 12) dug it too. Especially the Beefeater. He was fantastic.
We went with a tour guide. It turned out being such a rainy day, which only added to the atmosphere. Our guide from the outside was fantastic but wasn't allowed to talk during our tour in the tower. We were listening to one of the inside guides and were told by some of the people that we weren't allowed to, which was such a pity as he had such great stories and information. It was a fantastic experience anyway. We were there for the opening which was such a cultural and proud experience. I need to go back and spend more time as we had a time limit being with a day tour. I absolutely recommend this, and suggest setting aside extra time and not being too rushed so you can really take in the history and experience.
