Explore one of the oldest monuments in London on an early morning guided tour of the Tower of London, and see the Crown Jewels before the crowds arrive.

Skip the long lines to the legendary site, where 3 English queens were executed, and get a brief introduction to the origins of the attraction before you meet one of the Yeomen Warders, more commonly known as Beefeaters. Learn about the traditions of these elite guardsmen, historically responsible for the prisoners at the tower and for safeguarding the Crown Jewels.
