  White Tower, Tower of London
by mrclay2000

In the center of the Tower of London is William the Conqueror's White Tower, once the tallest building in London. Today it houses medieval relics, including suits of armor (mainly from Germany) from the days of jousting and chivalry. The interior otherwise is stark and Gothic, as primitive still as when it was constructed in the 11th century. Remember, though Norman royalty once lived here, the White Tower came into being long before the days of the feudal manor.
