Tower of London shops
Each has a different history and character and an amazing range of imaginative merchandise.
Tower of London shop
This light and airy shop was formerly a Victorian building known as the Salvin Pumphouse. At the main entrance to the Tower of London, our flagship store spans two floors. Pop in to pick up a souvenir of your visit or find that special gift. We have something for everyone! You don’t need a ticket to visit this shop.
Jewel House shop
The setting for our exquisite jewellery shop was once the scene of a heinous crime. In 1671 Colonel Blood, an unscrupulous trickster, lied his way in to the Martin Tower at the Tower of London, the original home of the Crown Jewels and made off with the contents, glittering crowns, sparkling sceptres and awesome orbs.
Once you’ve seen the Crown Jewels, stroll over to the nearby Jewel House shop with its own fabulous collection of precious and design-led jewellery for sale. Very tempting! Now everyone can take home a little piece of the Crown Jewels.
White Tower shop
In the year of our Lord 1078, William the conqueror began laying the foundations of the palace and fortress which was to become the historic icon of the city of London – the White Tower.
In the dark forbidding basement there is a sense of theatre that takes you back to the days of knights talking of battles won, swigging from tankards of ale and relaxing after a day on the field.
The White Tower shop in the basement of the White Tower offers a unique selection of replica armour, weapons and masculine gifts to delight any secret soldier!
Explore and discover the exciting range of products in the two themed areas of this children’s shop, Knights, Prisoners & Punishment, Kings, Queens and Princesses. With product ranging from dress-up outfits and t-shirts to themed souvenirs and books. Each area of this vaulted gallery shop is beautifully themed with hand painted illustrations, light projections and visitor can even be turned into a noble knight or crowned a princess with the interactive screens.
Here you’ll find guidebooks and a host of souvenirs inspired by our splendid Yeoman Warders or ‘Beefeaters’.
