Look out for life-size animal sculptures around the Tower, as the tower has been home to many royal beasts over the years. Get there as early so you can to avoid the queues and once inside, go straight to the Crown Jewels, as this gets crowded later. Make time for a guided tour by a Beefeater. These start every 30 minutes near the main entrance. The guided tours include information about torture chambers and equipment, which can be viewed at the Tower. This may not be suitable for very young or sensitive kids. Download the Time Explorers app, and your kids will be able to go on digital missions around the Tower. Make the most of the views from the battlements and at the top of the tower. A great photo opp!
