Enter into this secure fortress and get ready for a trip back in time - and a creepy one at that! This is the place to discover the darker side of English history, where royals met their deaths and were imprisoned for their wrongs. Tag along with a Yeoman Warder, who will lead you on a free, informative guided tour. See the infamous Torture Tower and feel the fear of the political prisoners who met their unfortunate ends. Visit the White Tower where Anne Boleyn was executed and learn the events that led to the imprisonment of kings and queens. There's also an impressive collection of weapons, armory and implements of torture that will have you squirming. And finally, don't forget to admire the collection of more than 23,000 gemstones on display and see Crown Jewels that still symbolize the British monarchy today.
