Tower of London
One of the most famous buildings in the world, the Tower of London was constructed in the 11th century – almost a 1,000 years ago and has been witness to countless significant events in the development of Britain’s now democratic monarchy.
During your tour of the Tower of London you will meet the magnificent Yeoman Warders or ‘Beefeaters’, clad as they were in Tudor times, hear the legend of the ravens and spine chilling tales from the Tower’s long history. See the infamous Bloody Tower where the Princes were murdered, Beauchamp Tower where visitors can read carved inscriptions of past prisoners and Traitors Gate where those unlucky enough not to survive imprisonment had their heads impaled – and much more.
We sell at less than the gate price, which gives you access to all the Towers and Attractions, as well as the unique Gift Shops, the historic New Armouries Restaurant, Tower Cafe and Kiosk. Your Tower ticket also includes entry to the Crown Jewels.
