Pain and passion, treachery and torture, all delivered with a smile and swagger.
The White Tower
The White Tower was the original Tower of London. Begun by William the Conqueror around 1080, it would have made a safe and impressive home for the newly crowned Norman invader. It is still home to original armours worn by Henry VIII and Charles I and a scary collection of historical weapons and torture instruments.
For those seeking a less gory side of its life, there is the beautifully preserved 11th century Chapel of St John the Evangelist to explore.
Prisoners of the Tower
Despite its reputation there are no dungeons at the Tower of London and its doubtful there ever really were. The Tower was rather more exclusive than that, with prisoners from the higher levels of society entitled to be held here.
Come and see what life was like imprisoned in the Bloody or Beauchamp Towers. Experience the sights, sounds and inscriptions left from incarceration five hundred years ago.
The height of the London Eye is 135m (equivalent to 64 red telephone boxes piled on top of each other) making it the fourth tallest structure in London.

Over 900 years ago William the Conqueror, with the help of his victorious armies, commenced construction of the castle at Windsor in 1070.
The site was chosen with great care; high above the river Thames on the edge of the Saxon hunting grounds.
The castle was a day's march from London, and guarded the western approaches.
Windsor Castle has since been inhabited continuously by Britain's Royal Family. The Castle is widely said to be the largest and oldest castle in the world.
