The medieval Tower of London is widely considered among London’s top attractions, but exploring independently means missing the hidden secrets behind the priceless treasures it holds. On this tour, beat the queues with skip-the-line entry and explore the tower as your guide brings its history to life. Along the way, meet the ravens guarding the tower, and discover must-see sites including the Jewel House and the White Tower.
We have to pass through a few gates with murder holes to get safely inside. Your guide will introduce you to Merlina, Jubilee, Grip, and other ravens. Some might be resting in their cages, some freely hopping around. They might even pose for a picture, but don’t get too close, they can bite!
Who was imprisoned in the Bloody Tower? Let’s find out, right after we escape the torture chamber, where you can still see some of the brutal medieval instruments. It’s time now to be impressed by the jewels, the crown, the scepter, the orb, and much more. The entire collection, which is guarded behind thick doors, has an unimaginable value.
We will explore the white tower next, the oldest part of the fortress, which is packed full with armor once belonging to famous kings, Henry VIII, Charles I, to name just a few. Upstairs, children and grown up’s can get involved with an interactive exhibition.
There is so much to see around the Tower of London. Once we escape the fortress, you will have a fantastic view of the famous Tower Bridge. We might even be lucky enough to see it open.
