The Tower of London
Home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is itself one of London's top treasures. Take in a thousand years of history as you walk in the footsteps of Kings, Queens, heroes and villains from William the Conqueror to the spies of the Great War.
The Palace has been the setting for some of the most shocking stories from Britain's past, such as the murder mystery of the royal princes in the aptly named 'Bloody Tower'. Tales of sinister plots, famous battles and regal intrigue can be heard on the famous 'Yeoman Warders Tours' while you can experience some of the major events to take place inside this World Heritage site through a series of costumed re-enactments.
Visit the Royal Armouries collection inside the White Tower then take a look at the arsenal in full use by using the interactive fortress displays. More of the Tower of London's violent past can be found in the infamous Lower Wakefield Tower which is home to some of the most feared instruments of torture from the last millennium. Find out about the changing role of Law and Order in British society and its impact on prisoners lives with incredible first hand historical sources like the graffiti from genuine inmates of the Tower of London on their cell walls.
If the battle scenes and horror stories are not for you, why not see how the other half live in the extravagant furnishings of the Medieval Palace? Walk through the lavishly decorated rooms offering a rare glimpse into the personal lives of the regal and political elite. Take tea or a light lunch in the New Armouries Restaurant followed by a stroll around the battlements for a stunning view of London.
