Tour Important Information

This is a walking tour. Access to the Medieval palace, battlements, Torture chamber, Bloody and White towers are all via steps. If you have mobility issues you can avoid some of these. There are cobbles, so walking shoes are best. The Tower is only wheelchair friendly on the ground levels.

I do not include entrance fees. Currently these are £33 per person - with child reductions.

You will have booked these ahead of time online (as the line will take too long). The website is Historic Royal Palaces.

I am not a driver guide - but I can arrange transport if we are out of town or other locations. We can use the Tube (its quite safe) if getting around London.

London
4 hours

The City of London is where the story of the UK's capital truly begins. Founded by the Romans after they settled in 43 AD, a walk through the City means you are passing through almost 2,000 years of history. Trade and commerce continue to define the district but amidst the modern hi-tech 21st century citadels of financial services are testaments to the past - notably The Tower of London & the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral with it's special & moving monument to Americans servicemen of WWII.
