What To Expect

Experience the Tower of London’s long and stormy history. Make your own way to the Tower and, once inside, join a tour led by a Yeoman Warder, or Beefeater. Learn the Tower’s origin story of 1066, and how it evolved from William the Conquerer's stronghold to a royal palace, armory, royal mint, prison and gruesome execution place. 

Pass under the famous ravens that perch near Wakefield Tower and lose yourself in myth and history as you visit the White Tower and its Royal Armories collection, the Bloody Tower and Traitors’ Gate. Hear the tale of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's unfortunate second wife, who passed through Traitors’ Gate in 1536 and was quickly tried for adultery and executed. Walk to Tower Gate, the execution site where Boleyn and many others met their fateful ends. 

Despite its chilling reputation, the Tower of London has also been the cradle for the British Crown Jewels since the 14th century. Get a close-up look at this remarkable regalia, the ultimate symbol of the British monarchy and the centerpiece of coronations since 1661. Don’t miss the famous 105.6-carat Koh-i-Noor diamond.

After you've visited the major sites, stroll along the Wall Walk and head into the Medieval Palace to admire the beautifully reconstructed spaces. Take your time soaking up this cornerstone of English history.

Enjoyable trip to the Tower of London
Clare_H, Apr 2024
Good way to spend a spare afternoon on marathon weekend. Able to get a good deal with Viator points. Highly recommend the beefeater tour with Barny.
Do not go on this tour.

Terrible 5 minute lecture. Just because it rained they moved us to a church and that was the end of it. I want a refund.

A great tour enhanced by the beefeater we had, delivering the message! #Beafie409 was amazing, knowledgeable, and humorous. Loved every minute of our tour. Your could easily spend all day at the Tower, and still not see all that is to see
Destination - Tower of London!

The Beefeater tour guide was fabulous and very entertaining! Buying the tickets ahead through viatour was a real time saver, as the lines to buy tickets was long. We just showed our ticket at the entrance and walked right in for our tour!
Crown Jewel

This tour was a lot of fun ! Lots of information and lots of time to explore. Beautiful grounds . To explore don’t miss the Raven gift shop
Don't miss the Crown Jewels.
Maia_B, Apr 2024
Crown Jewels exhibit was incredible! Both adults and kids loved this. I would definitely recommend the gift shop and food trucks right outside the Tower of London as well.
Tour is okay.
Jan_G, Apr 2024
This was ok…..get there early or you won’t see the Crown Jewels. Beefeater was entertaining. It only includes price to enter Tower grounds (not actual Tower) and to see Crown Jewels ….if you wanted to go in Chapel or White Tower it costs extra.

Glad we purchased tickets ahead of time so we walked right in. We had no information about the Beefeater tour. We never found where to go. Viator did not give clear instructions.
Fun place to explore

Beefeater portion was our favorite part. Fun place to explore. You are on your own for most of the tour.
