What travelers say:

The Tower of London (Tower of London) is a Normandy castle building on the Thames River in London, England, and is the most popular attraction in London. When James I (1566-1625), this was the palace of the King of England. For hundreds of years, the Tower of London has served as a fortress, armory, treasury, mint, palace, observatory, refuge and prison, and has been used for the upper class in special detention. The official name of the tower is "Her Majesty's Palace and Castle - Tower of London". It was registered as a world heritage site in 1988. Now a museum of crowns, robes, weapons and armor. The most famous of them is the Royal Treasure Museum, which exhibits the jeweled crown of the monarch since the 17 century, the royal ball, the scepter, and other treasures, and the weapon Museum displays the weapons, armor, and war robes used by the imperial family from the dynasties.
