Tower Of London
Ancient stones, priceless jewels and strutting ravens await you at this world-famous fortress. The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066, is full of stories - and not just about torture and death. An intriguing cast of characters in-clude jewel-thief Colonel Blood, tragic Lady Jane Grey and maverick zoo keeper Al-fred Cops. Come and find out more.
Kings, queens, statesmen, soldiers, poets, heroes and villains - find them all here in the 700-year-old Westminster Abbey. The Coronation Church since 1066, it’s the final resting place of 17 monarchs. Visitors can see the Coronation Chair, where all but two of Britain's monarchs have been crowned and Poets' corner - the burial place of writers, playwrights and poets.
Built for newly-weds William III and Mary II in the 17th century, Kensington has housed many private scenes of heartbreak and happiness within its elegant walls. Now it’s the official London home of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Who knows? Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of them - unless of course they’re in Norfolk or taken Prince George and Princess Charlotte to soft play.
A lesser-known attraction, Jewel Tower was built in 1365 to house Edward III’s treasures and was known as the 'King's Privy Wardrobe.’ It is one of only two build-ings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive a devastating fire of 1834. The Tower features replicas of precious objects and areas of set dressing including an 18th-century clerk's office.

The boyhood home of Henry VIII is now an enchanting celebration of 1930s Art Deco decadence. The stunning entrance hall, panelled dining room, luxurious bath-room, beautiful gardens, moat and magnificent Great Hall are just some of the high-lights.
