Hotel near The Tower of London
The Tower of London is one of the world’s most famous fortresses and has seen service as a royal palace, prison, armoury and even a zoo.
The ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and pampered ravens strut the grounds.
Constructed over 900 years ago by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London is steeped in a rich history. This fortress was expanded by many medieval kings and is a grand structure used by Royals through the years as a refuge and power base.
The Tower is still home to her majesty’s Crown Jewels, on display for visitors to see, and the infamous Beefeaters tasked with the job of guarding them as well as showing visitors some of the attraction’s highlights.
The White Tower is a huge and beautiful stone building in the middle of the site. Currently, it hosts the exhibition of Tudor, Stuart, Hanoverian and Windsor arms and armour “Fit for a King”. This vast collection begins by exploring armour created for both the battle and sports fields with an unmissable chance to see Henry VIII’s and Charles 1’s spectacular armour.
