The Tower of London: Royal history in the heart of London
Also known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, the Tower of London is an impressive castle on the north bank of the River Thames. The fortress is steeped in centuries of history and is instantly recognisable, drawing millions of visitors.
After the Norman Conquest of England, William the Conqueror was afraid of rebellion. To combat this, he started building a giant stone fortress on the Thames to safeguard and demonstrate his authority. William intended for his mighty castle to dominate the skyline and crush the hearts of the defeated Londoners. Overall, it took around twenty years to build.
Many rulers have lived in the Tower of London and have made numerous changes to it. Initially built in 1078, the main keep was a despised symbol of the new ruling elite’s ill-treatment of their subjects. Later, Henry III had the keep painted white and renamed it the White Tower in 1240. It is from this keep that the whole castle gets its name.
Over the years, the Tower of London served many purposes. During its time, it was a royal mint, an armoury and a prison. Notorious captives include the Scottish rebel William Wallace, Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, as well as Guy Fawkes.
Today, the Tower of London is an iconic part of London’s heritage and a must-see attraction. Tour the 12-acre UNESCO World Heritage Site with Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral Tickets to learn more about its fascinating past.
St Paul’s Cathedral: An architectural marvel
St Paul’s Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in London. It is the mother church of the Diocese as well as the seat of the Bishop of London. Standing high on Ludgate Hill, the Cathedral is a Grade I listed building. The highly acclaimed architect, Sir Christopher Wren, designed it in English Baroque style in the 17th century. One of London’s most famous sights, St Paul’s Cathedral touches the sky at three hundred and sixty-five feet. Surrounded by spires, its dome has ruled the London skyline for over three hundred years.
Much like the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral has a colourful history. Services held there include the jubilee of Queen Victoria, as well as the funerals of the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill. It was also the wedding venue of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Explore all five levels of the Cathedral at your leisure, and remember to whisper on the walls of the Whispering Gallery.
