Tower of London
The historic Tower of London has stood over the city for nearly 1,000 years. You’ll discover why the Tower has such a grim reputation during your visit to this World Heritage Site and learn about its previous uses. The Tower of London has been a palace, zoo and even a Royal Mint!
The Crown Jewels
The dazzling Crown Jewels are a must-see attraction at the Tower of London! These pretty and priceless royal treasures are celebrated symbols of British monarchy and you can discover the history behind the gems at the Tower’s Crown Jewels exhibition.
The White Tower
The oldest part of the Tower of London, the White Tower is a massive fortress built by William the Conqueror between 1070 and 1100! You can venture inside and discover a treasure trove of the past, with a number of unusual objects on display including diamond encrusted weapons and suits of armour.
Take a walk with one of the Yeoman Warders – these guardians of the tower are today all retirees from the Armed Forces of the Commonwealth realms. They’ll entertain with stories of intrigue and gore, giving fascinating accounts of what life was like in the Tower hundreds of years ago, and how people live in it today.
