GENERAL INFORMATION

The square White Tower was built in 1066 and each monarch since has developed new bits of this historical palace and fortress. It's where Henry XVIII beheaded some of his wives, and where the royal Crown Jewels are kept.

Insider Tip

Every evening, the historic ceremony of the keys takes place between the guards. You can book to attend for £5.
