Trio of Towers

The Tower of London and Tower Bridge stand tall over the Thames and the city. Discover the fascinating history of these two imposing attractions on our two day packaged tour based at the ideally located Tower Hotel, which boasts fantastic views of the city!
PACKAGED ITINERARY
Day 1 Tower Bridge Experience
Take in stunning panoramic views from the high-level walkways and experience the thrill
of seeing London life through the famous Glass Floor of Tower Bridge. Follow the 'Walk of
Fame' to discover some of the unsung heroes of Tower Bridge, uncover their stories and soak in the atmosphere of the working Bridge in one of London's true hidden gems: the magnificent Victorian Engine Rooms, where authentic machinery which once lifted Tower Bridge’s 1000 tonne bascules fills the space with whirring wheels and moving pistons.

Day 2 Tower of London & The Royal Mint Exhibition
Built by William the Conqueror to strike awe into the hearts of Londoners, the Tower of London is infamous as a prison but has also served as an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, a public record office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England. The Tower has housed many well-known prisoners, including Elizabeth I, Sir Walter Raleigh
and the two princes, the sons of King Edward IV, who were locked in the Bloody Tower by their uncle, who would later ascend the throne as King Richard III. Guy Fawkes was also imprisoned here following the discovery of the murderous Gunpowder Plot, and Anne Boleyn was held and executed at the order of her husband Henry VIII.  Prisoners were guarded and looked after by the Yeoman Warders, whose main task today is to guard the Crown Jewels, the largest set of jewels in the world, valued at anywhere between 3 and 5
billion pounds!

Coins and Kings: The Royal Mint at the Tower of London Exhibition
The Tower was also used as the home of the Royal Mint between c1279 and 1812 and now features in the ‘Coins and Kings: The Royal Mint at the Tower of London’ exhibition. With historical artefacts and interactive displays, visitors can explore what life was like for the people of Mint Street, who mass-produced coins for the nation. The exhibition tells the stories of famous monarchs who reigned over the Mint, and how their coins reflected the power struggles and politics of their time.
