  Tower of London - The Wall Walk
by kris-t
 
 

Favorite thing: The Wall Walk runs along the eastern inner curtain wall from the Salt Tower to the Martin Tower. Much of this great wall, which encircles the castle, was built in the 1230s and 1240s

Fondest memory: The building of this towered curtain wall transformed the defences of the Tower of London, giving archers and missile-throwing machines an excellent command of the land around the castle.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
