Tower of London
HM Tower of London has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the most famous castle keeps in the world, it was built to awe, subdue and terrify Londoners and to deter foreign invaders. It’s now an iconic symbol of London and Britain and one of the world’s premier tourist attractions.
Our nation's regalia is held in the most visible vault in the world. Thousands of glittering gem stones and yards of silver gilt create a priceless display of royal ornament. Each can tell tales of intrigue, power and majesty across the ages. The Maundy Dish and Imperial State Crown are still part of the annual traditions of monarchy, come on the right day and you'll see our own tradition - placing the ‘in use' sign on a velvet cushion in the relevant case.
Fit for a King
A journey through 500 years of royal arms and armour created for both the battle field and the sporting field. From Henry VIII's horse armour, Japanese samurai armour presented to King James I to Prince Charles' polo helmet and knee pads, worn as protection during the princes' polo playing days, the display is a unique timeline from the Royal Armouries collections.
The White Tower
The White Tower was the original Tower of London. Begun by William the Conqueror around 1080, it would have made a safe and impressive home for the newly crowned Norman invader. It is still home to original armours worn by Henry VIII and Charles I and a scary collection of historical weapons and torture instruments. For those seeking a less gory side of its life, there is the beautifully preserved 11th century Chapel of St John the Evangelist to explore.
