ticketts to tower of london and westminster abbey

by tabando

is it better to book ticketts to these attractions on line to avoid waiting in line? On average, how long is the wait if you fall in line on the day ... me and my husband will be in London on Oct. 16, 2009. Again a very big thank you to all of you who patiently took their time to answer all my questions... really, really appreciate everything

We waited all of about 3 minutes to get tickets to the Tower and that was in the summer so I don't think there's a huge benefit to purchasing in advance. If you buy in person, you can even try to use the 2 for 1 discount at

You are supposed to have a train ticket in order to use these but in reality they rarely check. Do print out the voucher before you leave home though. If you decide to do the Heathrow Express, you can get a day tube/bus pass at Paddington Station that will have the right logo on it, go to the train station, not the tube station, to buy it.

Same thing with Westminster Abbey, I think we just walked right up to the ticket booth

There is simply no guarantee about how long you will wait for either. It all depends on the day and time you visit. You might be in a queue, you might not. A longer queue is more likely at the Tower than the abbey.

If time is of the essence, then buy online in advance. The offical website for Tower pre-purchase is

There is no online pre-purchase offered on the official Westminster Abbey website:

Westminster Abbey is also on the 2 for 1 deals offered by daysoutguides. I have a sneaky feeling that the week of 16th October is half-term, so it may be that the Tower will be busy but even so, I shouldn't imagine you'll have to wait very long for a ticket.

Hawkhead, are you sure that Westminster Abbey is included on the 2 for 1? I looked before posting and didn't see it listed under "W". It used to be one of the 2 for 1 offers by getting an Oyster Card but I believe that was discontinued. And it looks like it might have previously been a 2 for 1 but was also discontinued.

Westminster Abbey has a great tour, in addition to the general admission, led by a verger. With your schedule from previous posts, you might not have time to do it but if you decided to just do Westminster Abbey and the Tower it would be doable in a day.

Well, waddayano, it doesn't seem to be included in the 2/1 offers anymore. Pity.
Perhaps it, the offer, will re-surface in the winter months.....

Travel Tips for London

Bye a ticket for the double decker bus.

by biljah

Well I loved all of London, but riding in the double decker bus is one of my favorite things about London. You can see the whole city form the bus, and they are very reasonably priced. I liked Oxford street the best! The shops, the people, the culture was cool...

Demonstration for Peace

One side of Parliament Square was completely covered with flags, banners and Slogans; in fact it was a big demonstration for World Peace.

There were protest flags against the war in Iraq, and also several flags against the Chinese occupation of Tibet.

Where did London Get its Beer from?

by scottishvisitor

I just love discovering connections with places many miles apart. Wandering around the old docklands of London threw up a connection with Aberdeen. John Courage an Aberdonian established his Anchor Brew House in December 1787. So if you have a pint of Courage in Old London Town remember where its roots are!!

Red telephone kiosk: British heritage.

by irisbe

For many the red telephone kiosk is THE symbol of UK, they are to be considered a heritage and not be neglected.
Before 1921 telephone boxes were made out of wood. It was until that date that the first Kiosk phone box the K1 got introduced. The design was a look alike of its wooden ancestor but the material used however was quite different: iron and concrete. In the year 1924 the post office organised a competition because they were looking for a new design. Sir G.G. Scott's design was the chosen winning project. It was the first bright red telephone box named K2. It was an expensive one, only 1500 were put and only in London. There was a big need for cheaper ones but with the same appearance. Scott then designed the K3,
made of reinforced concrete and was half the price as the previous one.
They were painted in cream colour and placed nation wide. This time people outside London could "enjoy" the new phonebox too.
However they showed to be rather fragile.
K4 got introduced in 1927 and was a "Post Office house design". It was combined with a post box and stamp machines but those stamp machines caused too much noise when people were making a phone call.
After number 50 this design was put back into the drawer... dismissed.

1934 was the year of appearance of K5, it was based on the K2 and tried to adapt the best parts of K2's design. It was a "portable phone box": easy to install and to remove, e.g. you could use it for meetings or exhibitions.

In 1935 Sir G.G. Scott was asked again to design a new kiosk and this on occasion of the Silver Jubilee of King George V.
K6 (see picture) was born; it was like the smaller edition of the K2. It is called the Jubilee Kiosk and was spread all over UK in big numbers: 60.000 have been installed.
It is this K6 that has become a real landmark of Britain.

K7, designed in 1958 in new materials was dismissed early because it could not cope with the British climate.
The last in this series is the K8, made of cast iron and glass panes. A total of 4000 were installed.
