Info

  • The Tower of London is a beautiful castle, parts of which were built in 1078.

  • The castle was  home to queens and kings, until 1837 when Buckingham Palace became home to Britain's sovereign.

  • The tower was once a prison and has seen plentiful of executions including two of Henry VIII's wives. 

  • Inside those historic walls are the sparkling crown jewels (bling bling worn by kings and queens).

  • Join the beefeaters (tower guards who live in the tower) for an hour long tour, where they will describe the castle's infamous history and the torture that occurred within its walls. 

  • UNESCO world heritage site.

  • To save on money, try the London Pass which, for a fixed fee, will give you access to over 55 London attractions.
