The Tower of London is located in St. Katherine’s and Wapping’s, within easy reach of all hotels and accommodation options including Belgravia event venues which is a key destination for many travellers. The Tower of London has been declared a World Heritage Site due to its importance in history. It has served as a prison, a palace, a private residence, and a treasure vault among other things through history. Not only does this stand tall as one of the key elements in the age-old history of the country, but it also offers spectacular views to all who visit here. The Tower is famous for its collection of royal armour and armaments. There is an exhibition of Crown Jewels, the Royal Mint, and the Beefeaters. If you are one of those people who can stomach gruesome displays, you would be interested in the execution exhibitions that illustrate the process of executions that took place through history. Right next to this great landmark of London is the Tower Bridge. A massive construction that extends across River Thames, with two 61m towers rising over the whole landscape.

The best time to visit the Tower of London s to set off early morning so you have plenty of time to visit all the attractions. You can reach here using the taxi or the metro. While the taxi is easier, using the metro is generally faster. For instance, it takes half an hour to reach the Tower of London from COMO The Halkin, London via metro, while it takes over 40 minutes by taxi. When visiting, make sure you have purchased an entrance ticket in advance so that you do not have to waste time standing in ticket queues. This will reduce the time wastage by a significant amount so that you have more time to actually explore the treasures within the Tower of London.
