Overview

900 years of history are embraced within the thick, turreted walls of the Tower of London. Founded in 1066, William the Conqueror built the majestic White Tower that still rises above the Thames. Tours given by the Yeoman Warders, shed light on the Tower's fascinating and often macabre history. Even though the violent years are long gone, an aura of death and medieval torture remains. The main attractions for most visitors are the breathtaking Crown Jewels. Also a tourist draw are the ravens; according to folklore, if they ever leave, Britain will fall prey to foreign invasion.
