We were excited to visit the Tower of London with our 8- and 6-year old, who are good travelers and are used to following audio tours, touring historical sites, etc. We were surprised on entering the Tower that there was no basic informational point at...More

Loved, loved it. We bought a London pass and that was a great idea. We were able to skip the lines and got in fairly quickly. The Crown Jewels were beautiful. There is so much to see. It takes most of the day to see...More

A must see when visiting London for the first time. Plan several hours here. The food in the cafe was good and priced fairly for the area.

Unlike the number 1 & 2 ranked TA sites that are museums, the tower is only 3 because you have to pay admission, but don't let that deter you as it's worth it. The line for the jewels is long but it moves quickly. The...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
