About the Tower of London

You'd better behave yourself on days out at the Tower of London or you could end up imprisoned in the Tower forever or have your head displayed on a spike outside, with only the ravens for company!

Explore all the gory, gruesome and fascinating history of London's Norman fortress from when the White Tower was built in 1078, through to its role in the First and Second World Wars.

Things to do at the Tower of London range from being dazzled by the Crown Jewels and their 23,578 gemstones, meeting the famous guardians of the Tower - the ravens - and pretending to be a brave, daring knight as you walk the Tower's battlements.

To make the most of your visit, take one of the Yeoman Warder (also known as Beefeaters) tours to hear captivating stories and spellbinding insight as you explore the Bloody Tower, Medieval Palace and Tower's Mint.

There is also a range of excellent exhibitions that kids will love, including Torture at the Tower and Imprisonment at the Tower.

There are two cafes within the Tower, serving meals and snacks, and a kiosk outside, while guests are also invited to enjoy a picnic in the moat during the summer.
