Meet your private Blue Badge guide in front of the Tower of London and get ready for a fun-filled tour as they take you to the highlights of this iconic monument of London.
For over 900 years, the Tower of London has dominated the city’s skyline. Through the centuries, it has served as a fortress, a royal palace, a prison, a jewel house and even a zoo!
Follow your family-friendly guide as they tell you about the secrets of the Tower of London and its world-famous Crown Jewels, which were mostly made for the coronation of Charles II in 1661.
Other highlights include the memorial on Tower Green, which marks the execution site of ten people, (including 3 English queens), the beautiful Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincula, the famous ravens and raven-masters, Traitor’s Gate, and the “Bloody Tower”.
To make sure your kids have a wonderful moment, our guide will hand out fun-filled game booklet to each child.
If the lines are too long for the Crown Jewels, the guide will offer the possibility to visit the White Tower, housing a wonderful display of armors and an interactive area on the history of the Tower of London on the upper floor. You will then be able to visit the Crown Jewels at the end of the tour on your own.

- "Our Family Twist guide, Marguerite, was incredible. My husband and I travelled to London with 2 ten year old granddaughters. We spent 3 mornings with Marguerite. We did the Tower of London tour, the Westminister to Buckingham tour, and the Kensington Palace tour. They were all fantastic. Marguerite kept the girls engaged and taught them more than I would have thought possible. And, she could tell when they needed a little break, so we would stop and sit down and have a snack. The girls adored her. So did we. The workbooks that the children receive make the experience even more meaningful for them. To see 2 ten year olds discussing the Stuart Kings at dinner, after a day with Marguerite, is priceless. If you ask for Marguerite, you will not be disappointed." - Sarah
