The Tower of London
Uncover the long, bloody history of one of London's most famous landmarks. The Tower's history is one of imprisonment and execution, with many famous prisoners held there over the centuries, including kings and queens of England.
Constructed almost 1,000 years ago as a fortress by the newly-crowned William the Conqueror to intimidate Londoners, over the years it has played the role of prison, royal mint and even a zoo. See the glittering, priceless Crown Jewels up close, a collection of gems, jewels and royal regalia that have been stored and displayed here since 1661.
For over 300 years, Kensington Palace has been a royal residence. It was here where Queen Victoria was born and spent her childhood and, more recently, the palace was home to Diana, Princess of Wales. Set within the tranquillity of Kensington Gardens, this is the most intimate of royal palaces.
Not merely an impressive stage for the duties of royal life, Kensington Palace is also a charming and much-loved home of members of the royal family. The magnificent State Apartments give a glimpse into their lives, with an impressive display of paintings from the Royal Collection on show.
The Banqueting House
The Banqueting House is all that remains of the Palace of Whitehall, the principal residence of Tudor and Stuart monarchs from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire.
Today, visitors can still admire the spectacular carved and gilded ceiling that contains the nine paintings by the esteemed Flemish painter, Sir Peter Paul Rubens. It was here, on a makeshift scaffold constructed outside on the pavement of Whitehall, that Charles I of England was executed on 30 January 1649: To this day, an anniversary service is held each year in the Banqueting House to commemorate his death.
