Tower of London

Local nameTower of London
LocationLondon Borough of Tower Hamlets, UK

Also known as Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress, this complex was one of the many castles built as part of the Norman Conquest of England. It has been extended several times in the past and has always played a major role in English history.

For some time, the Tower was used as a prison. Many notable figures were imprisoned here, e.g. Sir Walter Raleigh with his wife Elizabeth Throckmorton, Guy Fawkes, Anne Boleyn and even Elizabeth I before she became a queen. The Tower was also used as an armory, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public record office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England.

This large complex is now undoubtedly one of the most popular attractions in London drawing plenty of tourists who come not only for the Crown Jewels. Bear in mind that the whole complex is rather large so be sure to save enough time for it so you could see all the things that interest you.

Consider buying your tickets online so you can avoid the long queues that sometimes form there on busy days.
