Tower of London

Ancient stones reverberate with dark secrets, priceless jewels glint in fortified vaults and pampered ravens strut the grounds. The Tower of London is a 1,000-year-old castle that protects the Crown Jewels. It was a royal palace, a fortress and an infamous prison, and today it’s one of Britain's most visited historic sites.

Despite a grim reputation as a place of torture and death, there are many more stories to be told about the Tower which even housed a menagerie! An intriguing cast of characters have played their part, including the dastardly jewel-thief Colonel Blood, tragic Lady Jane Grey and maverick zoo keeper Alfred Cops.

Join in as the Tower comes alive with re-enactments from its evocative past, and see if you can spot our famous winged inhabitants, the ravens. Legend has it that Charles II believed that if the ravens were ever to leave the Tower, the fortress and the kingdom would fall.
