Want to literally be overcome with history, then visit The Tower of London. The oldest fortress in Europe, the original fortifications form Roman occupation are in evidence.
Not just one tower but many, many towers, each with mountains of history, and tales and executions...it seems to go on and on. In fact, as one listens to the guide tell of all the bloody goings-on, one catches oneself looking for blood stains on the courtyard's stones.
Plan at least an afternoon.
