Tower of London Private Guided Tour

Description

Explore the world heritage Tower of London with a private guide to lead the way- you’ll be astonished at the tales this tower can tell.

Keeping a watchful eye over the city and the river Thames since its founding in 1079, the Tower of London has had many faces: as a mint, an observatory, a zoo, an armory, a royal palace, a treasury, and most notoriously, as a place of execution.

Home to both the Beefeaters and the Crown Jewels today, the Tower’s story is one of intrigue, scandal, and ceremony, definitely best uncovered with a private guide and a morning entrance before the crowds arrive.

I am so glad l booked this tour of the Tower of London. Our children (ages 9 and 11) learned a lot. Our guide was excellent. His historical knowledge and real love of that history made his narratives so good. He was very friendly, and made sure we really got that special experience. I definitely recommend this tour company.
