Excellent tours by the Yeoman who protect the tower. Opportunity to see the Crown Jewels. Dress warmly if heading there in winter - it’s a lot of standing around outdoors.

Рекомендации местных жителей
“I would recommend you visit this beautiful Cathedral, where Princess Diana and Charles were married. Fact - The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London. Its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, has dominated the skyline for over 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1967. The dome is among the highest in the world. St Paul's is the second largest church building in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral. ”

“ince 1837, Buckingham Palace has been the London residence of the Royal Family and where Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, currently resides. Tourists can visit the Royal Palace, but it is only open to the public a couple of months a year: between July and October. If you are in London during these months, you can either buy the least expensive ticket which gives you access to the State Rooms and Buckingham Palace, or you can purchase slightly more expensive tickets which include a visit to the Royal Mews and The Queen’s Gallery.”
