Tower of London Tour - Mirandus Tours

Tower of London Tour

The Tower of London has stood by the side of the River Thames for over 900 years. It started off as one single tower but over the centuries has expanded into the formidable complex we see today.

Most famous as home to the Crown Jewels, The Tower also boasts many colourful stories since it has been used over the years as a; Prison, Fortress, Royal Palace, Royal Mint, Astronomical Observatory and as a Menagerie for wild animals. Some of the famous inhabitants include the uniformed Beefeaters (Yeoman Warders), the large, menacing looking Ravens and reputedly, the heartbroken ghost of Lady Arabella Stuart…

Highlights of the tour include:

  • Crown Jewels – display of priceless regalia and jewellery, much of which is still in use today
  • White Tower – original Tower of London and home to marvellous armour collection
  • Scaffold Site – actual site of execution for Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard,  the 2nd and 5th wives of Henry VIII

Sir Walter Raleigh, instrumental in the exploration and naming of Virginia, was imprisoned twice in the Tower of London. Eventually beheaded for treason, his final words were reputed to have been “this is a sharp Medicine, but it is a Physician for all diseases and miseries.”
