Tower of London

Highly recommended
The Tower of London's romantic silhouette, so emblematic of British history, has been the backdrop for some horrific episodes as well as moments of royal splendour. A visit is a must in order to see the Crown Jewels, and to admire the Yeomen of the Guard in their distinctive Tudor uniforms. Nearby Tower Bridge is also worth seeing, especially for the fine view from its pedestrian walkway.
