The 1,000 year old fortress in the centre of London - and at the heart of British history. Famous as the home of the Crown Jewels, iconic Beefeaters, legendary ravens…and bloody tales of prisoners and executions. UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and ravens strut the grounds.
The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066, is one of the world’s most famous fortresses, and one of Britain’s most visited historic sites. Despite a grim reputation for a place of torture and death, there are so many more stories to be told about the Tower. This powerful and enduring symbol of the Norman Conquest has been enjoyed as a royal palace, served as an armoury and even housed a zoo! An intriguing cast of characters have played their part: including the dastardly jewel-thief Colonel Blood, tragic Lady Jane Grey and maverick zoo keeper Albert Cops.
