This is the second time I’ve used Discount London for tickets and it doesn’t disappoint. The savings (especially in this economic situation) is certainly welcoming. The Tower of London is fascinating just make sure you have your walking shoes on for all the small stairs to the various towers. Well worth a trip for all ages.

Perfect day out.
Glad we got there early and did the crown jewels first as the que was huge by mid morning.
Places to eat, sit and enjoy the lovely surroundings.
Make sure u have completed you vivisection before exiting onto the river bank as there is a long walk round to gain re-entry
Fun History Lesson

My son and I enjoyed the day at the tower. When his young interest started to dwindle, we came across hands on activities that incorporated what he had learned with his imagination. Brilliantly placed. Thank you

A wonderful day out and great location. Timings were great as we got there early to beat the queues. Staff and Yeomen were very professional. Need at least 4-5 hours, very informative and entertaining.
