Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, the Tower of London, is actually more a castle than a tower. It is among all famous for being the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.
The castle is made of several buildings set within two concentric rings of defensive walls, and a moat, which is now dry. Currently stored in the Waterloo Barracks, the Crown Jewels are one of the main attractions. No picture was allowed and the Yeomen Warders, the ceremonial guardians, make sure that everybody respect the rule — I only took a picture of the door. Pretty impressive jewels and diamonds, trust me!
There are quite a few other exhibitions highlighting the history of the Tower as a prison, as an armory, a treasury and the national mint.
