Where is the Tower of London

Situated on the north bank of the River Thames, the London Tower was founded in 1066 during the Norman Conquest of England. The distinctive White Tower, which gives the landmark its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078.  It was in the Middle Tower that the 'Princes in the Tower', Edward V and his brother Richard, Duke of York, were supposedly murdered in 1483 on orders from their uncle Richard III. Today, it remains one of London’s most iconic landmarks and is one of the very few intact medieval buildings listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Get up close to one of the city’s most important buildings and discover more of its gruesome history with our Tower of London cheap tickets.

 

Tower of London facts

The Tower houses the Royal Ravens and their keeper. This tradition comes from a superstition during the reign of Charles II that both the White Tower and the Commonwealth of England would fall if there were no longer ravens there.

Over 23,500 jewels are kept there today and their total value is estimated to exceed £20 billion.

A number of ghosts are rumoured to haunt the Tower of London, including Henry VI, Catherine (the fifth wife of King Henry VIII), Dame Sybil (the nurse of Prince Edward) and even a grizzly bear that once lived in the Tower.

A royal zoo was founded at the Tower of London during the 1200s and remained there until 1835. It featured exotic animals such as elephants, lions, polar bears, kangaroos, and ostriches that were later moved to the new London Zoo in Regent’s Park. You can still see sculptures today of the animals that once lived there on your Tower of London tour.
