"Tower of London - The Scaffold Site" Historical Tip by kris-t

Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos

  The Scaffold Site
by kris-t

Favorite thing: In front of the Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula a railed-off plaque commemorates the execution in this area of seven famous prisoners

Fondest memory: A private execution within the Tower was normally decided upon when the execution was considered too politically sensitive to carry out in open view.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
