Tower of London - private tour away from the crowds: Leaving Victoria Coach Station we arrive at the Tower of London. Leading us into this world heritage site before it opens to the public our Beefeater will take us on a private guided tour explaining the history behind this fortress of imprisonment and torture. We are also amongst the first group to see the Crown Jewels.
