One of the essential ingredients to a trip to London is a trip to Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, the Tower of London (as it is formally known).

Built following the invasion of Britain by the Norman French King William the Conqueror in 1066 to keep hostile Londoners at bay, the Tower has borne witness to some of the most dramatic events in the country’s history.

In its time, it has been a royal palace, a prison, a record office and home to a Royal Menagerie of exotic animals (including lions, tigers, an African elephant and a polar bear), the Royal Mint and the Royal Armouries.

A highlight of your visit is sure to be seeing the Crown Jewels, the world’s most magnificent set of royal regalia, which is still used regularly by HM The Queen at important national ceremonies.

Standing guard at the Tower are the Yeomen Warders whose members have formed the Royal bodyguard since 1509. Current “Beefeaters”, as they are popularly known, are required to have served in the armed forces with an honourable record for at least 22 years (at least one served for 40 years).

The Tower is also home to seven ravens (members of the crow family). Legend states that the kingdom will fall if they ever leave the Tower. Only six are required to keep the country safe but an extra two are kept just in case!

On Tower Green stands the scaffold site where prisoners – among them two of King Henry VIII’s six wives, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard – were executed.

If your time is limited or you want a better understanding of the Tower and its legends, let me take you on a tour.

We meet in reception at your central London hotel or apartment and make our way to The Tower on foot, by underground, bus or taxi.

£160 (Not including travel costs or entry fees but this can all be included by prior arrangement).

``Glyn Jones was very much a gracious host of his lovely country. Our first stop was Arundel Castle, where he was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Next stop was a lunch he arranged at the Black Rabbit. Good choice Glyn! Then it was on to Brighton by the sea. Coming back into London, he made a special detour to the Hard Rock Café so I could pick up a souvenir shot glass for my son's collection. If we ever get back to the London area, he is my go to guide!``
