Pre-purchasing the tickets was convenient, quick and we were so happy we did it! We avoided lines and enjoyed a fabulous view of London with no hassles....Harpreet Hans
wonderful views of the whole city. We bought the guide but found that it was not up to date. There was at least 1 tower that was standing that seemed to be probably 30-40...Douglas A Pepper
