Tower of London
900 years of history are embraced within the thick, turreted walls of the Tower of London. Founded in 1066, William the Conqueror built the majestic White Tower that still rises above the Thames. Tours given by the Yeoman Warders, or Beefeaters, shed light on the Tower's fascinating and often macabre history. Even though the violent years are long gone, an aura of death and medieval torture remains. The main attractions for most visitors are the breathtaking Crown Jewels. Also a tourist draw are the ravens; according to folklore, if they ever leave, Britain will fall prey to foreign invasion. For booking tickets, call +44 20 3166 6000 or +44 20 3166 6755
Tower was according to my experience not the best place to visit. The lines to get in were still quite long and it was wet everywhere. The wall experience was past boned. Too many screaming and ignorant gruops of children and their neglecting parents.
Super mjesto za provesti sat-dva. Prekrasna izložba kraljevskih dragulja, interaktivna izložba srednjovjekovnog oružja ( super za klince i one koji nisu ubili dijete u sebi ), tamnice, kule, vitezovi, konji, kraljevski gavrani i njihovi čuvari, obilazak zidina...i još mnogo toga. u svakom slučaju, svakako odvojiti malo vremena i prošetati utvrdom.
This is a must see. Most tour bus's make stops here, tickets are resonable. Recommend to take tour with guide, You can go on your own, but totaly worth the time from the guided tour from beef-eater. Holds crown jewels and armor. Would plan 2 hours for trip. Also next to river cruise, very friendly to schedule a hop on/off tour , stop @ tower and do river cruise in a half day.

The Tower of London is really Castle located in the City of London. Nine hundred years of history are embraced within its thick, turreted walls. There were many towers to walk through, and each tower contained many objects to view. When we got hungry, we took a break and went to eat at the cafe inside the complex. I really enjoyed my food, and there were a lot of hot and cold choices. This was wonderful; the plays were delightful and so informative and captured children’s attention. I spent 2 hours wandering around the Tower with an audio guide, and it was some of the most magical time I spent in London. - Liton
Feel the history...wow, I just couldn't imagine the royalty that walked there before me...And to see the Royal Crown Jewels...wow...A must see, yes, a must see... And take the guided tour and hear the history.
I've been to London twice (about to go on my 3rd trip this spring), and I have always gone (and will go once again), to the Tower of London. The castle is absolutely AMAZING! There is soooo much to see. They have all kinds of tours, the beefeaters give great lectures, they have people acting out shows, and the BEST part is the Crown Jewels. They are absolutely BREATHTAKING.
I can't wait to make my next trip to London and go to the Tower once again. =]
I had never been to London, and I visited the Tower of London last week (March 2009). There were many towers to walk through, and each tower contained many objects to view. When my boyfriend and I got hungry, we took a break and went to eat at the cafe inside the complex. I really enjoyed my food, and there were a lot of hot and cold choices, as well as snacks including cappuccino and cakes. There were also bathrooms inside and outside of the complex, and I found each of these extremely clean (compared to public restrooms in New York). There were also many benches that you could sit on, in case you get tired. Overall, this was a really tourist-friendly place that you could spend hours enjoying.
This was wonderful, the plays were delightful and so informative and captured childrens attention. When they normally would by pulling on you to leave, they are begging to stay, who would have ever thought??? learning made fun.
