Tower of London, London Overview

A royal fortress and a World Heritage Site which is also famous for being an infamous prison back in the day, the Tower of London, founded in 1066 and located in the heart of the city, is a majestic fortress, with a history dating back to centuries before the present day. Treat your eyes to the world-famous and priceless jewels, archaic yet riveting architecture, and to a clear view of the River Thames on a day trip to this Tower.

Located in Central London, overlooking the River Thames, the expansive Tower of London has weathered a lot of storms since its inception in the year 1078. Having been damaged during the World War II in the Blitz (bombing by German camps on Britain) and having undergone many a reparation, it still stands tall as London’s one of the most famous tourist attraction sites. The palace is guarded by a corps of the Royal Bodyguards, also known as Beefeaters, who also act as tourist guides.
