On our Tower of London guided tour, your guide will introduce you to Poppy, Jubilee, Grip and the other ravens. Some might be resting in their cages, some freely hopping around. They might even pose for a picture, but don’t get too close, they can bite!
Who was imprisoned in the Bloody Tower? Let’s find out, right after we escape the torture chamber, where you can still see some of the brutal medieval instruments.
We’ll continue on to be impressed by the jewels, the crown, the sceptre, the orb and much more. The entire collection, which is guarded behind thick doors, has an unimaginable value.
We’ll continue on your guided Tower of London tour to explore the white tower next. This is the oldest part of the fortress and it’s packed full of armour once belonging to famous kings, including Henry VIII and Charles I, to name just a few. Upstairs, children and grown-ups can all enjoy a fun interactive exhibit.
There is so much to see on a tour of the Tower of London. Whilst you could visit on your own, you will surely miss the layers of history and intriguing stories that your Blue Badge Guide knows by heart.
