Tower of London, London: 519 reviews and 919 photos


You should definitely make it a point to see the Tower of London, which with its 900 years of history was a place for executions. Take the guided tour and see the Crown Jewels. Next on your list should be Westminster Abbey and built in 1066 it is an architectural wonder of the world. You will be amazed at the interior and exterior of this famous building.
Be sure to see the Houses of Parliament with it’s 1,100 rooms, 100 staircases and11 courtyards and it houses Westminster Hall, the Crypt Church, Members' Lobby. Imaging cleaning that home? It would be quite a job. For an afternoon go to see the Science Museum and Madame Tussaud's (the famous wax museum). These two museums will be a wonderful afternoon of information and tremendous works of art.
Now you are ready to see the Kensington Palace, the residence of the late Princess Diana of Wales and where Queen Victoria was born in 1819 and then the Windsor Castle where Royalty still lives now. This is how the very upper echelon in London lives.
