Founded by William the Conqueror in 1066-7 and enlarged and modified by successive sovereigns, today the Tower of London is one of the world's most famous and spectacular fortresses. In its time it has been a royal palace, a fortress, a prison, an armoury, a treasury and an astronomical observatory.

As a result there is a lot to see, the major draws are the Crown Jewels and the history associated with the Tower's role as a prison for major figures in history, prior to for many a public hanging. The Beefeaters (guards) dressed in distinctive uniform and Ravens provide classic photo opportunities, the Beefeaters also perform tours.
