My wife, Mother and I went in early June of 2018. You just cant beat the History here. From the Crown Jewels to the Tower itself it is awe inspiring. You could really spend a whole day here. Can not recommend it enough it is a must see if in London.

I am a history buff so the Tower was my thing. The guides were superb and happy to share their knowledge. Of course, one must visit the Crown Jewels, they are quite impressive. The Tower is even better after hours. Do try to get passes to the Key Ceremony, which takes place at 9:30 pm. There is something special about the Ceremony and being in the Tower after hours. The night view are spectacular.

London is full of fantastic modern architecture and it stands side by side with the likes of the ''Tower of London'' but the ToL will still be standing when the Shard and the like are dust. The Tower is full of mystery and magic, what an atmosphere in the place. Better to spend your money here than the £30 to get you up the Shard.

I always have thought of the Tower of London as the tortuous prison that housed many queens and famous people. There is so much more to know about this palace! We rented the head set which is a must and gives you lots of historical info. There are 1/2 tours given by the yeomen? however they were very crowded so we skipped that. The only area that was super crowded was where the crowd jewels are located. Otherwise you can take your time wandering around this beautiful site. Make sure you don’t miss the ravens!

Not worth paying all the money to go inside can work out very expensive , room have no furniture ,you do get to see King Henry the eights armour but is it worth paying a small fortune for no don't think so just look from outside take a few pictures and read about it on the Internet.
