The Tower of London: A Celebrated World Heritage Site

One of the most famous, and arguably infamous buildings in Britain's history, the Tower of London is a historic landmark that was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988. It was founded in 1066 by William the Conqueror and has been an important symbol of the British monarchy ever since. It was previously home to the Royal Mint, and has been used as a treasury, armory, and prison. On this tour, you will see the Line of Kings Exhibition, with its stunning displays featuring the figures of kings, royal armor and arms. The White Tower is known for its impeccable ability to keep invaders at bay and makes for an awe-inspiring sight. See the most famous diamond in the world, The Great Star of Africa, housed in the Jewel House alongside the precious Crown Jewels. Don't miss out on exploring the Tower of London with the Yeoman Warders (or the Beefeaters as they are popularly known) who will regale you with exciting stories through the ages.
