What You’ll Experience
The site of political scheming, bloody beheadings, and the home of the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is a terrific place to spend a fascinating – and slightly eerie – day. There's plenty to explore here at the Tower of London. It's been everything from royal residence to mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and the holding place for the Crown Jewels – a function it still serves. You'll obviously want to check out all that royal bling, but there's plenty more to see.
