Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, or, more commonly, The Tower of London, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. Located on the north bank of the Thames in London, the castle was founded in 1066, following the Norman conquest of England. Here, you can find the Crown Jewels (all 23,578 of them), which have been on display since 1669. Even back in the 19th century, half a million visitors flocked to see them. An ancient belief states that at least 6 ravens must be kept in the tower at all times - otherwise the kingdom will fall - and so they are kept there to this day. A tour to see the ravens is included in the ticket price. The castle has had a number of uses over the years, including as a grim prison, and as a site of execution - including of that of Anne Boleyn - wife of Henry VIII. Enjoy the many characters dressed in period clothing, who wander the castle and grounds. Check out the Yeoman Warder tours - which begin every hour.
