• Tower of London Plus River Cruise

 

Combine a trip to that famous castle the Tower of London with a river cruise leaving from a nearby pier.

Red-jacketed Beefeater guards will welcome you to this 1000 year old castle.

Built as a palace by William the Conqueror, the Tower spookily became a prison and place of torture which many entered through the Traitors’ Gate. Like many others, Queen Anne Boleyn, wife of Henry VIII, was beheaded here.  

Nowadays it’s a much nicer place and a visit wouldn't be complete without seeing the amazing Crown Jewels including the Imperial State Crown and the Sceptre and Orb.

Your ticket includes:

  • Hop-on Hop-off all day sightseeing cruise ticket
  • Entrance to the Tower of London

Tower of London & River Cruise

    ★★★★★

    Bundling the tickets saved us a lot of money.


    15 Jun 2018

    ★★★

    It seems like we spent as much time docking and positioning the boat as actually traveling down the river Thames. Good views for sure during the short journey but overall it was just meh and I can't say it's recommended.

    ★★★★

    Took guests from India - they enjoyed the day and the commentary on the way


    02 Jun 2018

    ★★★★★

    Boats well signed and left on time. The return boat was better as it was a live commentary with a very entertaining guy - good comic. Have heard him before on a previous trip to London and he’s excellent. The audio recording wasn’t nearly so good!!

    Muy interesante, algo de filas para entrar a las diferentes atracciones (joyas de la corona), pero avanza rápido y vale la pena.

    ★★★

    Tower is great to visit. Website says you have to print your ticket. Having to print a ticket , which you then need to exchange for a City Cruises ticket, which you then have to exchange for an actual Tower ticket was a bit of a sjlep - especially since I was travelling and didn't have access to a printer. Be great if you could streamline this process.
