Alone with the Crown Jewels: VIP Tower of London Tour

See the Crown Jewels without the crowds and take a fully guided tour of one of the most spectacular medieval castles in Europe on this VIP visit to the Tower of London.

With a skip-the-line early entrance, you’ll get to watch the famous Opening Ceremony before being among the first into the Jewel House to see the Crown Jewels. Usually, the line to enter can last over an hour, but you'll enter immediately and enjoy a visit without the crowds. You can take your time and soak in one of the most dazzling collections of riches in the world.

Your guide will then lead you on a full tour of the Tower of London. You’ll tour the very best parts of the tower and learn the pivotal roles they played in the bloody history of the United Kingdom.

After a walk along the walls, you'll get a chance to meet the Tower’s resident ravens and get an archer’s eye view out over the old moat. You'll then step into the castle keep, or White Tower, for a full tour of a wonderfully preserved Norman castle.

The inside is full of swords, armor, and royal regalia, so as you visit each room, your guide will take you back in time to when England was still ruled by kings and queens. Some of it can seem pretty romantic, but you may be surprised how difficult and brutal life was.

This is the most exclusive way to see the very best parts of the Tower of London with an expert guide. Given that lines into the Jewel House can run for over an hour on busy days, having them all to yourself is one of the most spectacular experiences in London.
