The Tower of London happens to be one of the most popular attractions in the city. This historic tower was built in 1078 by William the Conqueror and served as a prison as well as the royal residence. It consists of many towers and served over the years many purposes including a treasury, an armory, the home for the crown jewels, the Royal mint, where the nation’s coins were manufactured and a historical zoo. A visit to the Tower of London is one of the most interesting things you could do in London!

Get to know the Tower of London

The entrance to the tower is not cheap, but if you have the London Pass, entrance is free and you get to skip the long lines! That said, the Tower of London is best visited in the morning and it is recommended to get to the Crown Jewels exhibition as early as possible otherwise you will spend most of your day standing in line along with hordes of other tourists who wished they would have booked their tickets in advance. The London Pass will get you into the tower for free as well as many other attractions in the city. Nearby places to visit like Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge Exhibition, the HMS Belfast and over 60 more are free to enter for those who have the London Pass.

So what will you do during your next vacation? Visit the Tower of London of course! There’s guided tours with the Guards known as Beefeater, otherwise known as Yeoman Warders. Every half an hour there are guided tours around the Tower. Our tip? It seems like the guards are more stand up comedians than guards and it is highly recommended to take these tours and gain more out of their humorous personality!
