  Tower of London - The Broad Arrow Tower
by kris-t

Favorite thing: This tower takes its name from the broad arrow that was stamped on goods to show their royal ownership.

Fondest memory: In later years the tower became a prison and contains many inscriptions made by prisoners who were held here in the 16th and 17th centuries
