The collection of armor for many kings was beautiful. A beautiful, the largest diamond in the queens septet along with the crowns, the bedrooms of kings and queens the view along the river. It was really fascinating. I would definitely go again.

The history was just stunning. You could feel Henry the VIII and Elizabeth I prescense throughout the visit. The Crown Jewels were mesmerizing. If you love anything Royal or Castles and history you won’t go wrong coming to this. Be prepared to walk up lots of stairs. Some of them small and steep.

I love love love the tower. There is so much to do and see here. You could easily visit more than once and see or learn something every time. I would definitely go earlier in the day. If you are unsure of doing a tour try the audio guide first. If you come back the beefeater guides are fantastic as well.

Download works really well for audio tour. Family of 4 & we organised it as 2 x 2 to make sure we were synced nicely. Easy to use & navigate around. Great maps pre loaded & helped when we got a bit lost. Well worth it to max the experience.
December 2021
A must for any history lovers. A Fascinating glimpse into one of our capital city’s most Historic buildings. The audio guides were very good and easy to use and follow. My only disappointment was that because of tube strikes, we arrived an hour later than our entry time so did not manage to see everything. Will definitely re-visit.
