The Tower of London, founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-7, is one of the world’s most famous fortresses yet despite its grim reputation as a place of torture and death, there are so many more stories to be told. The world famous collection of fabulous finery and regalia – the Crown Jewels housed in a Jewel House, explores the importance of the jewels to the British monarchy, the role of the Tower in protecting these treasures and the long and fascinating tradition of coronations in England. You cannot miss the iconic White Tower, a symbol of London and Britain, overlooking the River Thames. A day at the Tower is not over until you have experienced the Beefeater tours - share the secrets of one thousand years of royal gossip and intrigue with a Beefeater, or to give them their proper title ‘Yeoman Warder'.
