Explore almost 1,000 years of history at the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Tower of London. See The Crown Jewels, Bloody Tower, Tower Ravens & more.
Prepare to be dazzled by the breathtaking, world-famous collection of the Crown Jewels which contain 23,578 gemstones and 140 ceremonial objects that are still used in royal ceremonies today. The collection is perhaps the most powerful symbol of the British monarchy and counts among its extravagant collection the ‘Great Star of Africa’; the largest clear cut diamond in the world set in the Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross.
The Bloody Tower & The White Tower
In the Bloody Tower, you’ll explore the most infamous prison at the Tower of London and learn about the story of the ‘Princes in the Tower’ and see where bones thought to belong to the princes were discovered in 1674 when a staircase leading to the White Tower was demolished.
The White Tower, which gives the entire grounds of the castle its name, was originally built by William the Conqueror almost 1,000 years ago and is the oldest medieval building at the Tower of London. Inside, you’ll see the world-class Royal Armouries collections, including the ‘Line of Kings’; an exhibition of the royal armours of Henry VIII, Charles I and James II. Discover the armour of the ‘Giant’ and marvel at the spectacular gilded armour and weapons on display.
The Royal Mint
Until 1812, most of the coins in circulation in Britain were made at the Tower of London in a dedicated area that became known as Mint Street. Explore the story of the Mint between 1279 and 1812 at the fantastic interactive exhibition, where you’ll have the chance to learn about its long history, the monarchs who reigned over the Mint and how the coins produced there reflected the politics and power struggles of the times.
It is said of the ravens in the Tower of London that if they ever leave, the Kingdom of Britain will fall. Meet the famous six tower ravens and learn more about why they are known as the Guardians of the Tower
