"Tower of London" Tower of London Tip by Sjalen

Tower of London, London: 523 reviews and 935 photos


One of the absolute "musts" for the first time London visitor, the Tower ooozes English history. The entrance fee is quite high but you will see where so many things happened for centuries. The inner keep houses the armouries and you will find exhibitions on various weapons and techniques for how to use them. In the side towers, you can ponder if this is where Richard III had his nephews killed...if he killed them at all (personally I don't think so as he had nothing to gain) and see the horrible Traitors' Gate where prisoners were taken through a gap in the walls down to the riverside where they drowned as the tidal water came back in...Then there is of course the Crown Jewels which are kept here, if you are fascinated by huge Victorian diamonds and other gems.
