Tower of London
See the Crown Jewels and Experience History come to Life at the tower of London
The Tower of London built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror, is one of the best examples of a medieval castle in the world and you'll find plenty to see inside. In the very heart of London visitors can view the Crown Jewels, squirm at the instruments of torture that are on display and spot the graffiti on a prison wall left by the bereft husband of tragic queen Lady Jane Grey. You'll learn all about what it was like to be kept in the Bloody Tower on the hour-long guided yeoman tour. If you dare, sign up for a Twilight Tower tour after dark where the beefeaters will take you to all the spookiest bits of the building and relate tales to make your toes curl!
