We arrived approximately one hour before closing and will advise that a three hour duration is recommended for the Tower of London. We told them we only wanted to see the Crown Jewels and as we had a two-for-one voucher we were not bothered about...More

This was the seat of power long ago in London and the British Empire and definitely worth the time for a visit when in London.

This was well worth the visit. One has no idea how much money is tied up in tradition until visiting here. Needless to say, the crown jewels were fabulous. The display isn't huge, but is so fascinating that it takes some time to see and...More

The attraction requires no presentation. The fortress itself is in excelent state of repair. The Crown jewels: what can you say looking at the largest diamond in the world ?

There is so much history here to witness. We started a Yeoman tour but there was so many people we thought we would prefer to continue with our audio guide. On the day was visited, the yeoman wore their regal outfits to celebrate the birth...More

I’d go with the Tower. You can easily spend a couple of hours there. If it’s a short trip to Windsor due to time constraints and travel I think you might feel rushed. Windsor is great, but there is a lot to see there too... More
