Tower of London, London: 523 reviews and 935 photos


The Crown Jewels are what most visitors to the Tower of London come to see. This incomparable collection of crowns, orbs, swords, sceptres and other regalia, and gold and silver plate was refashioned in 1661 after parliament had ordered the original gold and precious metals to be melted down for coinage in 1649. The Crown Jewels are housed in Jewel House which is a part of the Waterloo Barracks in the Tower of London.
