Tower of London

The Tower of London has played a pivotal role across the course of English history. Whether as a royal residence, the ex-home of the Royal Mint, or a as prison, the tower has stood since 1066, during the Normandy period. It is renowned for being a place of execution, most famously where Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard were sent to be beheaded.

Millions of people come from all over the world to see this historic site and hope to catch a glimpse of the Crown Jewels that are stored inside. The Brick Tower also recalls the multitude of wild animals, such as tigers, lions and elephants, that lived in the Tower and were kept close by for the court’s entertainment.
