Tower of London
The Tower of london has always been a popular attraction in London. In fact it has been fascinating visitors for over 300 years!
The tower itself was built in the reign of William the Conqueror and has been a prison, a place of execution and even a jewel house. It was through Traitors' Gate that prisoners would enter the Tower for the last time before facing their death. Tower Hill, found just outside the Tower, was once a popular place for executions- especially on a Sunday!
Today the Tower houses, among other things, the Crown Jewels and the Royal Armouries. Ravens circle the tour during the day and Yeoman Warders in Tudor regalia guard the Tower.
