Tower of London

I’ve typically only admired the Tower of London from the outside as it is so expensive to visit, but this time we decided to take a peak inside and visit the old prisons, court yard, see the crown jewels and see places where people used to be tortured.

The first parts of the Tower of London were built on early 1000’s and its history includes several sieges and building of additional towers. In the 16th and 17th century it was also used as a prison for many famous British people, such as Elisabeth 1. It has also been a home to tigers, lions and many other prestigious animals.
