Founded by William the Conqueror and added on to by successive British monarchs, over 900 years, the Tower of London is a landmark that provides a dramatic way to explore the history of England, and in particular, life in London. The complex encompasses palaces, prisons, torture chambers and the royal treasury where the Crown Jewels are kept. A visit can include seeing Henry VIII’s armor, the Sceptre of the Cross with the world’s largest uncut diamond, the execution block where Sir Thomas Moore and two of Henry the VIII’s wives (Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard) were beheaded, cells carved with prisoner’s pleas as well as moats, Beefeaters, the legendary seven ravens and twenty-one towers. Given how rich its history is, the Tower is best toured with a knowledgeable guide but be sure to leave plenty of time for exploring. Indagare members can contact our bookings team to arrange for a visit with an expert guide.
