Tower of London


Tower of London
The Tower of London (officially "Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress") is a historic monument on the North bank of the River Thames in central London.

The best known building at the site is the White Tower which was a fortress built by William the Conqueror in 1078. Many people are seemingly unaware that there is in fact an entire a complex of buildings on the site, all of which are surrounded by two walls and a moat.

The Tower has a long and rich history, and has served many purposes over the centuries including as a fortress, royal residence, mint, observatory, prison, place of execution, and zoo. There are many legends associated with the site, including ghost stories, and of course the famous legend that if ever the ravens were to leave the site, the monarchy and the kingdom will fall. The Tower of London is also home to the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, which are worn by the British monarch during the coronation ceremony and in other official functions.
