More information about Tower of London

From William the Conqueror’s construction of the White Tower in 1078 to its addition to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1988, the Tower of London houses much of England’s most important history. See the Line of Kings (complete with resplendent battle armor), the Crown Jewels (breathtaking regalia), and the Ravens (South Lawn-dwelling Tower guardians who, legend says, if they leave, England will fall).

The Tower of London has been an armoury, menagerie, and treasury, and today, it is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Guarded by London’s unmistakable Yeoman Warders, the property — expertly cared for by the Historic Royal Palaces — has many picture-perfect features.

Visitors can ascend the castle’s battlements: up there, you can both imagine what it was like to defend a castle at war and take sweeping views of the contemporary London landscape. Across millennia, the Tower of London has been a singular fixture in an ever-changing city. Get Tower of London tour tickets here on TodayTix.

What to Watch For

  • Edward I lived in the Tower of London, which features a recreation of his 13th-century chamber housed above Traitors’ Gate. Get a sense of the scale and design of kings’ bedrooms in that era.
  • Six ravens are kept in the Tower of London at any given time; if fewer than six are captive, legend says the kingdom will fall. Chat with the Ravenmaster who tends them, and see the Yeoman Warders standing by as guards.
  • In British slang, being “sent to the tower” means being sentenced to imprisonment because the Tower of London historically was home to the torture and sometimes execution of political prisoners.
