Guided Tour
Do this because

  • Be one of the select few to witness the Opening Ceremony, one of the oldest military ceremonies in the world
  • Take a fully guided tour of the Tower and see the White Tower, the Bloody Tower and the Torture Chamber
What to expect

Start your tour with a skip-the-line and early entrance into the Jewel House where, standing inside the Traitor’s Gate with a small group of fellow visitors, you’ll watch an ancient military ceremony that officially opens the tower every day. After a quick introduction from the Yeoman Warders who guard the palace, you’ll stroll straight into the Jewel House and be among the first people to see the Crown Jewels.

Your guide will take you on a full tour of the Tower of London and tell you the poignant stories behind the deaths of people like Anne Boleyn and Sir Walter Raleigh.

After a walk along the walls, you will step into the castle keep, or White Tower, for a full tour of a wonderfully-preserved Norman castle. The inside is full of swords, armor and royal regalia so as you visit each room, your guide will take you back in time to when England was still ruled by kings and queens.

The guided portion of your experience ends in the White Tower but we’ll give you time at the end to see some of the areas we didn’t visit like the Beauchamp Tower and the Fusiliers Museum.
