Within the ancient Fortress, the Tower of London, visitors can gaze up at the massive White Tower, tiptoe through a king’s medieval bedchamber and marvel at the priceless Crown Jewels. Meet the Yeoman Warders with bloody tales to tell; stand where famous heads rolled, discover where prisoners and exotic wild animals were kept – then hear even more surprising stories about the Tower – a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Our Tower of London tickets are valid for entry to the Tower and Crown Jewels any time on your chosen date. We recommend that you allow 2-3 hours for your visit to the Tower.
If you get tickets to Shakespeare's Globe exhibition you will enter the world’s largest exhibition devoted to Shakespeare and the London in which he lived and worked. Housed beneath the reconstructed Globe Theatre on Bankside, the exhibition explores the remarkable story of the struggle to rebuild the Globe, and brings Shakespeare’s world to life using a range of interactive displays and live demonstrations.

Tower-ing experience Nick, 25/01/2016 (Mature Adults)Simply superb all round!
Our London Trip Gill&Liv, 02/08/2015 (Family with young children)Bought our tickets online prior to our trip down to London for the same day. Went to the tower first as we knew it would get very busy in the Summer Holidays. Easy to exchange our home printed tickets for our tower tickets at the group desk at the tower. The tower was interesting, just make sure you wear sensible shoes, ladies, wear trousers, skirts are not best, lots of steps and ramparts to walk up and along. My ten year old is really into Horrible Histories so she was quite happy to make connections between what she has learnt and the Tower's history. Plenty of facilities for food and toileting. We spent half a day here which was enough. Great views of the Thames from the tower walls.
The Globe Trip initially was disappointing. Only in that we had planned to go and view it in the afternoon but it was closed as there was a show on, but the theatre honoured our ticket and allowed us to come back and see it the next day, We were not aware that it was closed in the afternoon so be aware when visiting. This trip was really for me. My daughter didn't enjoy it as much as I did. If you've studied Shakespeare and enjoy theatre then this is a really magical experience. The tour guides make it a truly memorable experience putting their own personal slant onto things. If we had had more time I would have stayed to see a show but we had to catch a train home. The prices for the Globe are reasonable, the tour time is only half an hour but you are invited to go back into the exhibition if you would like too afterwards and there are handsets with commentary for more in-depth information.
So for reference - if you can book the Globe Tour the first thing in the morning, it opens at 9am-12am in the Summer, and then go across to the Tower it opens at 10am.
Plain Sailing Little Rock, 23/02/2015 (Mature Adults)The website was so easy to use. Technology and I have never seen eye to eye, but I had no trouble at all using the website. The 'online tickets', to be exchanged at each venue for 'real tickets' caused no problems or holdups. As I said it was plain sailing and the venues were a delight to see.
