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 meet you back out in the courtyard and then lead you on a full tour of the Tower of London, a site where many a royal head was removed on the old execution block and learn the poignant stories behind the deaths of people like Anne Boleyn and Sir Walter Raleigh.

Then head up to the Bloody Tower to see where Sir Walter Spent 13 years of his life and down into the basements where enemies of the crown were tortured in a dungeon that contains examples of actual medieval torture devices. After a walk along the walls, which includes a peek inside the restored bedroom of Edward the Confessor (a must for medieval history enthusiasts), 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 This is the most exclusive way to see the very best parts of the Tower of London with an expert guide.
