Tower of London, London: 523 reviews and 935 photos


Touring the London Tower with Yeoman Wardens.
The Yeoman Wardens are the keepers of the tower and the crown jewels. BUT! They also make great tour guides! :D

Honestly I think having a tour of the tower with a warden is the way to go. Sure, the beauty of the architecture, jewelry, armors and weapons can speak for themselves to a certain extent, but the wardens really give you a better understanding of the place thanks to all the historical information they hold. Also the one we got was pretty funny. It doesn't cost more and the tour takes about 1 or 2 hours (don't remember, sorry..) Even thought I'm not a fan of guided tours, these guys are definitely worth it.
