Do this because
  • Use early entrance to get into the Jewel House before the crowds
  • Be one of the select few to witness the Opening Ceremony, one of the oldest military ceremonies in the world
  • Take a fully guided tour of the Tower and see the White Tower, the Bloody Tower and the Torture Chamber
What to expect

Start your tour with a skip-the-line and early entrance into the Traitor’s Gate with a small group of fellow visitors, where you’ll watch an ancient military ceremony that officially opens the tower every day. After a quick introduction from the Yeoman Warders who guard the palace, you’ll stroll straight into the Jewel House and be among the first to see the Crown Jewels. Your guide will then take you on a full tour of the Tower of London and tell you the poignant stories behind the deaths of people like Anne Boleyn and Sir Walter Raleigh.

Your expert guide will lead you on a complete tour of the Tower of London, beginning with the Execution Site, on Tower Green, where many noble lost their head. As you go from there to the Bloody Tower and then to the Torture Chambers, you will get a firm sense of English history in all its gruesome forms.

After a walk along the famous Tower Walls and a quick look inside the refurbished bedroom of Edward I, you’ll spy on a “conspiracy” of the tower’s resident ravens. Your tour ends with a highlight as you step into the White Tower (the central tower, or ‘keep’), for a full tour of a refurbished medieval castle. Your guide will leave you inside the White Tower, but you'll be able to explore the other areas of the Tower of London on your own. As the guided tour ends, you’ll also receive a flexible one-way boat pass for a London sightseeing river cruise to be used on any day and from any pier.
