Description

Echoing with secrets and stories from the past, the Tower of London makes for a great day out for the whole family! Originally built as a fortress by William the Conqueror, the Tower of London has held many roles in its almost 1,000-year history.

Perhaps the most famous castle keep in the world, the White Tower was built to inspire Londoners with both fear and awe at the same time, as well as to deter foreign invaders. Here you can visit the interactive Armoury in Action experience and shoot arrows or brandish a sword.

Visit the ‘Mint: Coins and Kings’ exhibition to learn about the 500-year history of the Royal Mint at The Tower of London, and discover how Isaac Newton tried to remove counterfeiters from London when he was Warden of the Mint.

Explore the Jewel House to marvel at the collection of 23, 578 gemstones that make up the Crown Jewels. Or take a Yeoman Warder tour and learn about the fascinating history of the Tower of London, including stories of torture, imprisonment and execution.

Once London’s first zoo, and home to many exotic animals including polar bears and elephants given as royal gifts, today’s animal residents are less exotic, but equally fascinating – see the Ravens; known as the guardians of the Tower.
