With each step you take through the vast Palace you will learn about the history of the monarchy as well as gain a new appreciation for this famous residence and family who reside there.

HM Tower of London

Officially it’s named Her Majesty’s Tower and Fortress, The Tower of London and it is a must see. Built by William the Conqueror, the Tower was actually meant to keep people out but after a while it became more known for being a prison.  Deputy Chancellor of Germany Rudolf Hess was housed here and among many others Queen Katherine Howard was beheaded here. The Queen also has a residence on the grounds and you can spend the day touring and still not see everything!
