Tower of London

Tower of London

The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and pampered ravens strut the grounds. The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-7, is one of the world's most famous fortresses, and one of Britain's most visited historic sites. Despite a grim reputation as 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 for over 600 years even housed a menagerie! An intriguing cast of characters have played their part, including the dastardly jewel-thief Colonel Blood, tragic Lady Jane Grey and maverick zoo keeper Alfred Cops.
