    Touristy, for sure.. but you will not get a better sense of the history of London anywhere else. The Yeoman Warder (aka Beefeater) tours are included in the admission and informative and entertaining.

    Didn't pay to go up to the top level, but just being on it and watching it day and night was amazing. Such a fantastic structure.

    This is an amazing peek into the heart of the UK’s struggles and victory over the Nazi aggression. Even teenagers will come away with some aspect of understanding.

    I did marvel at the fan vault tracery in the Henry VII Lady Chapel, even though it was paid for by a Tudor. Sorry, Richard III.

    I did also forget to find the plaque to Queen Anne Neville. Sorry, Anne.

    I did engage a “verger” or “docent” or guide at the entry window. The guide was great, pointing out what I would not likely have found without her. Even with paying for her assistance and with offering her a gratuity, I profited from her knowledge. I apologize that the tip was a bank note that was no longer accepted without exchanging it at a bank. Sorry, I did not know.

    Now I repeat that the fan vault tracery is marvelous. There is even a mirror table so that one may look down to see the tracery above. One should not miss this marvel. …. Even if it was paid for by a Tudor.

    One really feels the sense of history in this building.. though this "fifth" iteration really doesn't capture the full history of the cathedrals that have stood here. Definitely worth a visit.

    A vibrant spot, one of the best parts of London in my opinion. Teeming with people, amazing ambience, enjoyable, bright, the shops are great and the food is even better. Definitely a must-go for everyone!

    Really interesting tour, made all the better by our guide Phil Mansfield. If you get the chance to tour the buildings (which are far more impressive in the flesh), I hope you're lucky enough to have Phil. One of the wittiest & knowledgeable guides I've come across.

    Our tour was absolutely fantastic and a must do for all sports fans. Our tour guide was wonderfully funny and enjoyable by the whole party. The history at Stamford Bridge was top notch with wonderful photo opportunities throughout.

    I must be honest and say that I accompanied a friend here whilst visiting London because he wanted to do so - I probably wouldn’t have been fussed enough to pay to see a view of London (albeit a great view).
    Nonetheless, we had a London pass and this activity was included so go we did.
    Whilst I admit to not being all that enthusiastic, that is purely my view and in terms of what was delivered, I can say that they did just that.
    The views are indeed amazing and the staff were all courteous and friendly. It is a shame the same can’t be said for all other patrons…it was at times frustrating to see people standing for a long time by the windows talking selfies and video calling their friends whilst we (and others) were waiting to see the views we also paid for. This is no fault of the venue or staff, of course…it’s just worth mentioning so anyone reads this knows what they may experience.
    I must say that it was very efficient throughout…there was no waiting around (we visited for the last viewing at 8pm on a Saturday) and all the staff we encountered were moving everything along with skill and patience. I personally wouldn’t visit again but I do understand why people do visit and I wouldn’t wish to deter anyone from doing so.

    F-ing Wow! Having done the Shard at £30 a pop in April this was way better, and free. The 360 view is better (cleaner bigger windows) and open terrace. Booked in advance so just loved it when jumping the line. My son wanted to come at last minute (not in our party of six) but easily accommodated. Nearly made mistake of sneaking in food, big no no, but loads of places to eat before/after at Street level.

    It is spectacular and will return with the missus next time.

    A great experience as a massive fan, absolutely loved the legend tour with Charlie George. Very informative, friendly and took time with everyone on the tour. Great opportunities for plenty of photos .

    We arrived about 10:40 am and left about 12 noon. We had a front row standing place to see the horsemen and soldiers. The public is barricaded from being very close to the Palace. The display was awesome. We were impressed with the security surrounding the ceremony.

    Terrific museum. I'd been aware it was home to the Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals but the rest of the collection is great too. Del Sarto, Bronzino, Cornell de Lyon, the Dutch Golden Age represented by Rembrandt, Dou, Metsu, ter Borch, Bol, Maes, Lievens, de Hooch. Also a couple portraits by Velazquez, good collection of French painters, and even a few rooms with arms and armor.
