Description

Situated overlooking the river Thames and listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Tower of London is one of the top must see places in London.

Founded by William the Conquerer in 1066-7 and enlarged and modified by successive sovereigns, this historic building holds many stories from times past.

Having a reputation as a place of torture and death, over the years it has seen a wide range of used, from a royal palace, armoury, prison and once even housed a zoo.

As you stroll around this impressive fortress, you will marvel at the White Tower, a through the key hole look at the king’s medieval bedchamber and of course a glimpse at the dazzling Crown Jewels.

Among the objects on display in the Jewel House are the magnificent solid gold St Edward's Crown (1661) made for the coronation of Charles II and used to crown Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The Imperial State Crown (1937), worn by the sovereign on great state occasions, and the Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross and the Sovereign's Orb, used at the coronation of every monarch for 350 years. Some of the world's most exceptional and historic precious stones are to be found adorning objects in the collection. Among them Cullinan I and Cullinan II, the two largest top quality cut diamonds in the world and the extraordinary and ancient Koh-i-Noor diamond. Other famous stones include the Stuart Sapphire, the Black Prince's Ruby, and St Edward's Sapphire all set in the Imperial State Crown.

If time permits take one of the Beefeater tours and listen in disbelief as these famous Yeoman Warders tell tales and unlock the secrets from within the walls they still guard today.
