"Tower of London" Tower of London Tip by LarsLous

Tower of London, London: 523 reviews and 935 photos

This is where all began. The biggest empire was started from here. You have to see Her Majesty's Tower Of London. It is the oldest building in the city, the first tower was build buy William The Conqueror. In this fortress, England was ruled from here many centuries, many people were hold captiv in here, some beheaded, several kings and queens of England had theyr residence here. A spot really not to miss !

In the Tower itself, you will find the jewell house, in which are exposed the crown jewels of England. And if the Tower does not interest you, because you think that it is a pile of old stones (like my brother does) , the jewels will fascinate you. The biggest diamond in the world, the Star of Africa is in the scepter of the queen.

The tower of London is on the list of world heritage by the Unesco.
