This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour.

Not only was it not horrendously expensive, it was enjoyable, you werent rushed, it was informative and not too long-winded.

Of course it had the obligatory Tower Shop at the end of it, as these places always do, but it was a good tour.

Inside, we looked through the telescopes mounted on the wall, out over the Thames. It was really lovely, the feeling of standing over the Thames... all that water under you! :)

They have a short film explaining the hydraulic system and some history about the Tower, and then you go down into the original engine rooms.

They hire both sides of the bridge area out for parties and special events... what a stunning venue to hold an occasion to remember - above the Thames!

I hate to think of the cost involved, but if money was no object, then this must be one of the most sought-after venues in London :)

A good tour.! They even laid out the red carpet for us ;)
