Royal history on the bank of the Thames
Standing tall on the north bank of the River Thames is the Tower of London. It is a historic Castle placed within two circular rings of defensive walls and a moat. Officially called Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, the Castle was founded in the 1070s by William the Conqueror. The site derives its name from the Tower’s oldest structure – the White Tower.
The Tower of London and its surroundings served as a royal palace until the 17th century. It was also a prison, execution spot, royal mint, public records office, menagerie and an arsenal. Visit this eighty-nine foot historically rich fortress and learn about generations of British history. While you tour the twelve-acre UNESCO World Heritage Site, catch a glimpse of the legendary ravens. The Tower of London always houses six ravens for superstitious reasons. You can also see the magnificent Crown Jewels and much more with Tower of London Thames River Cruise tickets.
