The Tower of London


Tower of London  Sunlight

Tower of London  Far Corner
See the Crown Jewels gleaming in the strongroom and the tiny suits of armour then imagine the ghosts walking the battlements. Feel the cold shiver as you stand near traitors gate or imagine losing your head on the block. The beefeater guides will fill you with spooky tales and history. It really is worth a visit and if you have never been plan a visit to the Tower on your next trip to London.

Off With her Head!




 









The Tower is Londons history in one building, from Elizabeth 1st imprisonment by her sister Mary to the murdered princes. The Tower has been a Palace, a refuge, a prison and a torture chamber. It has housed lions and tigers, Kings and Queens, statesment and traitors. The impressive setting of the Tower as it gazes out over the Thames with Tower Bridge seeming a majestic extendion of it is a sight not to be missed.

Tips to keep costs down:

Tower of London Main Entance
 Look for 241 tickets or use your London pass if you have one, also offers of 241 are often available if you use the train and show your train ticket.
