Planning Your Visit

  • How to get there?

    Near Tower Bridge, the Tower of London's nearest Tube station is Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines. It can also be reached by taking the DLR to Tower Gateway.

  • How long to visit?

    There are 12 acres and a lot to see within the walls of the Tower of London. History buffs could easily spend a full day there! Although you could feasibly rush through it in three hours, we'd recommend setting aside at least six to do an official Beefeater tour. Some areas, such as the chapel, can't be accessed any other way!

  • How much does it cost?

    Tower of London tickets normally cost £22 (with concessions available). However, admission is also included with the London Pass, which comes with the added bonus of not having to queue!

Really great tour. Tour guide John was amazing, very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. Very friendly. The tour was great, walking around London and seen all the amazing sights. The boat trip was lovely, especially to see all the London lights. Highly recommend. Walk all flat. Not scary, just really good stories.

Michael was an amazing tour guide (although he did say he wasn’t official and just a member of the boat crew). He made everyone feel safe and added some great commentary along the ride. Would definitely book again as we go a great view of either side of the Thames!

Very entertaining evening with tales of ghastly ghosts and a lot of history thrown in! Nice couple of hours that flew by with our enthusiastic host George. Loved it

We enjoyed our little tour, really nice experience. I can recommend to all people visiting for the first time but even Londoners
