The Tower of London – or more correctly: ‘Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress’ is one of the great icons of London and Britain. The castle was originally built by William the Conqueror in 1078 as a statement of his power and success. It has been a notorious prison, a palace, an armoury, menagerie and the fortress for the British Crown Jewels. Guarded by the famous ‘Beefeaters’ it is rich in tradition but also has numerous secrets and dark tales of torture, murder, sabotage and war. One legend claims that if the ravens of the Tower should ever leave then London will fall. It was here that the royal princes Edward V of England and Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York were almost certainly murdered and buried in secret. With such a dark past, many visitors report a sensation of dread and it is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in the United Kingdom. Famous ghosts include Thomas Becket, – the murdered Arch Bishop of Canterbury, The Princes of the Tower, King Henry’s ex wives who were executed in the tower and even several animals including a violent bear that was once kept in the adjacent menagerie. It has many secret passages and it’s believed that several more still remain undiscovered. The White Tower – as it’s also known – is Britain’s most searched for visitor attraction.
