Pictures of the Tower of London

Construction of the Tower of London was order by William of Normandy (William the Conqueror) and finished around 1098 by his sons and successors. The tower was a huge undertaking at approaching 100 feet in height and with walls nearly 15 feet thick. Today the Tower of London is an amazing site by Tower Bridge, looking much like a snapshot from centuries before. However its been continually built, re-built and renovated during all of its history. This means there are examples of architecture and artefacts from over 900 years. There are some 22 separate towers, all with their own unique bit of history. perhaps the best known being the Bloody Tower where several deaths occurred.
There is much to see inside the buildings and grounds. Of course the most viewed exhibit is the Crown Jewels in Jewel House (Waterloo Block) however there's also a huge collection of arms, armour and assorted weapons from years gone by within the White Tower. Each tower has its own exhibits, many with large screens telling the history of the specific tower in words, pictures and sound.
 Also synonymous with the Tower are the Beefeaters (Yeoman Warders, who officially guard the Tower of London) and the Ravens. Legend says that if ever there were to be less than 6 Ravens within the castle this would lead to the fall of both the Tower of London and England itself.
