This rule is in place until further notice. We are still able to guide in the other areas of the Tower of London site and you will be able to visit guiding-restricted areas independently.

Then, depending on your preference, we may enter the White Tower, the oldest part of the Tower of London, and explore the state-of-the-art Norman fortress and royal palace. Alternatively, we can explore the many other towers, perhaps seeing the graffiti carved into the walls by prisoners in the Bloody Tower, where two young princes were said to have been murdered in 1483.

When is the best time of day to visit the Tower of London?
We generally recommend visiting the Tower of London in the morning as this is when the Tower tends to be quieter. During the summer, there can be very long queues for the Jewel House in particular, which may make it difficult to get in before closing.
Whilst the Tower welcomes all visitors, this historic building has places with difficult stairs and passageways and wheelchair access is limited. There are also a large number of steps throughout the Tower with cobbles laid on some of the roads. However, the Jewel House and the Crown Jewels are fully accessible to all visitors. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding accessibility for your tour.
Yes! We have some excellent family-friendly guides who can appeal to the learning styles of children. We have a separate Tower of London for Kids tour just for families with children 12 and under. When booking, feel free to provide us with information about your children such as favorite school subjects, and hobbies.
Will we get to talk to the Beefeaters on this tour?
You may see the Beefeaters at work while you're at the Tower, but we usually won't be able to interact with them on the tour.
