Description

The site of political scheming, bloody beheadings, and the home of the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is a terrific place to spend a fascinating – and slightly eerie – day.

There's plenty to explore here at the Tower of London. It's been everything from royal residence to mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and the holding place for the Crown Jewels – a function it still serves.

You'll obviously want to check out all that royal bling, but there's plenty more to see.

The White Tower holds, among other things, Henry VIII's XXXL suit of armor in the Royal Armories collection. St John's Chapel, on the first floor, dates back to 1080, making it the oldest church in London!

The best way to get oriented is to take a tour with one of the Yeoman Warders. These men and women (popularly known as 'Beefeaters') have been guarding the tower for hundreds of years. Their 60-minute tours leave every half hour from the main entrance.

Be prepared for tales of intrigue, imprisonment, execution, torture and other gruesome thrills.

Insider tip

Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in the United Kingdom) will fall. Keep an eye out for the ravens who roam the grounds.

My 6-year old absolutely loved the Knight experience and the Crown Jewels.

We were lucky that the weather was kind to us so we were able to get all the whole castle, inside and out. The beefeaters are so knowledgable and humorous. We will return again in the summer months as it will probably look even more glorious
