- The ‘peak times’ of the Tower of London are hard to predict, because the busiest days are very likely to be when large parties (such as schools) are visiting. It’s best to visit in the morning mid-week. if you’re visiting during English school holidays, you can expect large crowds and longer waits. Saturday is usually the busiest day, not including Bank or Public holidays- which the Tower stays open on. The Tower is closed on from the 24th of December to the 26th of December and also on the 1st of January.
- If you’re determined not to queue at all, the Tower of London is maintained by the Historic Royal Palaces organisation which provides membership to other monuments with a queue jump feature. Be aware that the Tower of London features a working site of religious worship and thus there are obviously some restrictions regarding tourism.
- Always smart to get your tickets in advance!
