  • Well laid out access allowing good information & viewing of jewels and associated historical artifacts. The whole tower & environs are fascinating. Tower Beefeaters are approachable and only too happy share their invaluable knowledge. All the Tower staff are well mannered, helpful and cheerful. Well stocked souvenir shop/s, terrific cafe. Could spend all day at this wonderful London asset
  • Definitely worth to see, but make sure you have time to read the descriptions. It will help you understand what you see. Otherwise, these will be just beautiful regalia with beautiful jewels. But you can get more out of your visit here if you use your reading skills 😀 Expect some waiting time in the queue too. Anyway, very worth it.
