"Entertaining and Informative Tower Tour!" Tower of London Tip by seasonedveteran

Tower of London, London: 523 reviews and 935 photos


This Tower blasts your tourist tutsy back into the Age of British Kings. The iconic 'Beefeater' tour guide ( youll know them when you see them), with their impeccable riot english accent describe eloquently stories of betrayal, child murders, London Turning points in history, and providing a humourous undertone along the way. Ha! the beefeater even tried hitting on one of the guys wives in our tourist group. priceless... and after the tour although you will be tired, you are free to rome the fortress grounds as you please.

The most treasured moment was seeing the crown jewels. I particullary liked, although the less appreciative and hurried tourist rushed past it, the moment preceding the jewels where a large screen presentation of the Queen Victoria II coronation plays. No other country does pomp and ceremony like Great Britain and I quite enjoy that stuff. We dont have that ceremonious parades of royalty here in canada. Finally the presentation showcases the complete collection of the crown jewels.
