We visited here to see the Crown Jewels. As well as seeing these, there's lots to see. Allow at least 2.5 - 3 hours for your visit. There is a wealth of history to be seen here, and not just the jewels. A brilliant day for adults and children.

A visit to the Tower of London is a MUST if visiting London.
Loved the history of the buildings, as well as being able to view the crown jewels. I think you need to have half a day minimum to see everything that is offered and to have a tour with the Beefeaters! Been twice and will go again!!

We had a great experience. Saw the Crown Jewels first thing and then covered the rest. I don’t think it is necessary to visit all the towers. By the time we left there was a very long line to see the Crown Jewels.

Really enjoyed the grounds- would have liked to spend more time, 90 minutes was not enough to see everything. The tour book is a really great purchase for £5, lots of good info without being too much.

From William I forward this has been an integral part of pre-Georgian history. Very well maintained and the Crown Jewels are spectacular.
