The Tower of London is a historic castle on the north bank of the River Thames, it was founded in 1066, and the White Tower was built by William the Conqueror in 1078. The Tower served as a royal residence in early history and later it was use as a prison from 1100 right up until 1956.
Two of the most famous prisoners were Anne Boleyn and Queen Elizabeth I before she became queen. Anne Boleyn, second wife of King Henry VIII was tried and executed within the Tower.
There have been many prisoners at the Tower including Anne Askew (the protestant martyr), Guy Fawkes (famous for his gunpowder plot), Sir Thomas More (Chancellor of Henry VIII), Edward VII (the prince who disappear from the Tower) and many more.
Once you are inside the Tower we would advise you to take a Yeoman Warder tour which will explain the history behind this fortress of imprisonment and torture, before you queue up to see the crown Jewels, Traitors Gate and Bloody Tower. Make sure you keep a look out for the Ravens, legend has it that if the Ravens leave, the monarchy and Tower will fall!
