About Tower of London

The Tower of London is a castle which was originally a royal residence before later being used as an armory, menagerie and prison. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1988. The most attractive sites here are the Crown Jewels and White Tower. The Treasury displays many of the precious treasures of the British royal family such as sparkling crowns, scepters, swords and more. The White Tower is one of the older buildings in the Tower of London. It is located in a central location with St. John's Chapel and a royal ordnance exhibition. Visitors can see the armor that was worn in ancient times by knights.

    When we finished our tour on the Thames River, we went ashore to the Tower of London. We traded the one-day tour ticket for tickets to the scenic spots and entered the old castle, which is situated on the Thames River and covers an enormous area. The castle, which was listed as a world cultural heritage in 1988, was once the castle of the British Royal family. At first it was the palace of the Royal family. Later, it was used for various purposes, such as fortresses, armouries, prisons and prisons. Of course, it became a haunted place because of the detention of the abolished king. Because there are many towers in the castle named the Tower of London. At first we thought it was a tall tower, but the result was a castle surrounded by several towers. After entering the castle, we visited several towers along the outer walls, arranged some pictures and texts related to the palace in the limited open space of the interior, and made some interactive models in some places. In a word, there are many factors of artificial landscaping here, so it seems rather boring. In the Tower of London, tourists lined up in a long queue of tall and ancient buildings known as "Treasure Hall" and we waited in line to enter the room to see Royal crowns and other symbols of Royal power. The waiting time in the queue coincides with the performance of the job-changing ceremony. The simple ceremony also attracts the attention of many tourists. In this castle, staff wear ancient British clothes, or regularly lead tourists to explain visits, or give visitors some questions and explanations. It is also a good way to alleviate queuing boredom by queuing indoors and starting to look at pictures and videos. Then I saw the Royal Crown and gold and silver jewelry and other appliances. Photographs are strictly prohibited in the room. Electric escalators are arranged before the exhibits. It is impossible for tourists to stop. Finally, the crown worn by Elizabeth II when she came to power in 1953 is the crown left by Elizabeth I. The 530.2-carat diamond "African Star" inlaid on the scepter is the most beautiful and super-shining diamond in the world. After a time-consuming visit to the Crown Showroom, we visited the Weapons Museum in a nearby building called the White Tower. The White Tower is the oldest building in the Tower of London. It is located in the center of the castle. It has a chapel and a Royal Armament Exhibition. Besides the delicate armor worn by ancient knights, it also sees the display of ancient swords extending to modern guns. Although they are all used or collected by the British Royal family, they seem to have little attraction for us, because we can only take a look at them in the light of time.

    Before the Tower of London came to Britain, it was thought that the Tower of London should be a tall tower or the two towers on the Tower Bridge that called the Tower of London. It was only after the Tower of London came to Britain that it was known that the Tower of London was a former castle site. Twenty-eight pounds is absolutely enough to spend half a day without feeling particularly expensive. There are the former Museum of Weapons, the Royal Jewelry Museum, the prison prototype and so on. Many places of insight can not be photographed, oh, real gold and silver crown, crown, stick, jewelry, can only remember its beauty with their own eyes, oh! _________ It used to be the Royal Zoo, so now there are many animal models made of steel wire and many crows because the British think crows are lucky and don't know what the Japanese think.

    The famous Tower of London is not a tall tower, but a castle across the Thames River from the City Hall. It is a landmark palace and fortress in London, England. There is a small museum in the Tower of London, where crown scepters and armoured weapons are also placed, which is very worth visiting and can not be missed.

    The Tower of London is next to the Hilton Yalin Hotel where we live. It's a few minutes'walk. It's next to the Tower Hill subway station. The traffic is convenient. There's a square in front of the Tower of London. There are all kinds of ticket sellers. You can walk along the Thames River for a few steps to see the London Bridge. It's a good place to take pictures.

    Someone always confuses the Tower of London with the Tower Bridge next to it. The Tower of London is a small castle, a palace, a prison, surrounded by a moat. Crossing the Tower Bridge, you can see the Tower of London on the Thames River, which is also the easternmost scenic spot on the tourist map of downtown London. Because by the river, sometimes seagulls come over, not afraid of people at all, like pets.

    Before I went there, I always thought that Tower of London was a traditional vertical tower like the Oriental Pearl Tower. Then it was stunned to say that the tower was clearly a beautiful palace with lions and unicorns in front of it.

    Free visit with London pass. Many members of the royal family have been imprisoned. There are also exhibitions of royal jewelry and some weapons. For another four pounds, you can rent a Chinese guide. From time to time, there were staff performing sitcoms. Outside the Tower of London is the Tower Bridge of London and the Thames River Cruise Terminal. Tower Bridge and cruise boats can be visited by London pass. One end of the boat goes to Greenwich and the other end to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and London Eye. The debris building can also be photographed near the wharf.

    With a good command of English and a certain background of British history and culture, it is interesting to visit the Tower of London.

    The history of shuttle - Lonely Planet is rated as the most worthwhile paid attraction in London! More than 500 carats of the Queen's Royal Staff shines in my eyes.
