We had a guide that took us to the Tower of London which was worth the visit. It was interesting to hear about all of the history from many moons ago. The Ravens were cool to see, and the Crown Jewels.

Take the Hop on Hop around and make a stop here to walk back in time when Kings and Queens ruled and punishment could be swift but so Historically interesting. If you have time take a guided tour.

It was good, but if there are a limited number of things you have the time for in London, then it can be skipped. Or you can just look, like I did, at the Crown Jewels which were GRAND, instead of spending hours at the...More

This is a must see when you visit London. There is so much history here. To really appreciate it, do a guided tour. The vault that holds the Queens jewels is extraordinary. The jeweled crown is just gorgeous, it's hard to imagine it being worn....More

We visited the Tower of London primarily to see the Crown Jewels. We visited the Jewels and then joined a tour with one of the Beefeaters. The history shared during the initial explanation of the property itself is unbelievable, but once you begin visiting the...More

So, I'm marking a number of things you must do in London. This is another one. the Tower has been a part of London since 1069. So much wrapped up with London (and Englan's) history. the White Tower has a large collection of armour, arms,...More
