Well maintained. Visited during pandemic so some areas closed but still worthwhile. Lovely to see it a bit quieter and without the usual crowds.

This is a great historical building made even better by the fact that at the moment it's not too busy. All but the torture room and the cafe was open. There are hand sanitisers around and masks must be worn inside. The yeomen were happy to talk to people and the ravens were around too. It is an enjoyable 20minute walk from London Bridge station but it is also possible to reach it from other stations.

Fantastic visit. My first trip as a Londoner of over 40 years! The lure of a less crowded environment tipped the balance and the family and I went. Worth getting a year membership in order to visit the other palaces and Royal Gardens around London. Really informative beefeaters and well kept towers.

I have booked a slot as soon as they reopened and it was very enjoyable as there were no queues, no overcrowded spots. Everything is organized so it goes in one direction. Some parts that would normally be open were closed for safety reasons but they are working on reopening them soon. Nevertheless, what is worth seeing is accessible. Loved it! Great experience, almost surreal to be there with just few people around.

Educational day out for my nephew (and us adults too)! The actors put on brilliant displays and their costumes were great! Loved seeing the crown jewels.. Shame we couldn't get any pictures of those!
