Tower of London this Friday 2/21 or Saturday, 2/22?

How much more crowded would you expect the Tower of London to be this Saturday as opposed to Friday?

I am planning my itinerary and would have scheduled the Tower for Friday to avoid crowds and seen Westminster and St. Paul's on Saturday, but have found Westminster and part of St. Paul's will be closed this Saturday.

What do you think?

It is a half-term holiday for schools here this week so it probably won't make that much difference which day you go on.

Thank you Jacqui.

Any other opinions out there?

I would be more concerned about crowds in Westminster Abbey than in the Tower of London. At least in the Tower there's plenty of room. Sometimes the Abbey can be shoulder to shoulder with tourists.

I certainly wouldn't pass up an opportunity to see Westminster Abbey and St Paul's, even if it meant sharing the Tower with more people.

Whatever day you go get your tickets beforehand. The closest place is the metro station you'll probably take to get there. I'd say we saved an hour or longer wait in line by doing this.
