Tower of London - White Tower

Tower of London ist ein befestigter Gebäudekomplex entlang der Themse am südöstlichen Ende der City of London. Die Ringburg mit zwei Festungsringen diente den englischen und britischen Königen unter anderem als Residenz, Waffenkammer, Werkstatt, Lager, Zoo, Garnison, Museum, Münzprägestätte, Gefängnis, Archiv und Hinrichtungsstätte.

 

Tower of London, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London. It lies within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, separated from the eastern edge of the square mile of the City of London by the open space known as Tower Hill. It was founded towards the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The castle was used as a prison from 1100 (Ranulf Flambard) until 1952 (Kray twins), although that was not its primary purpose. A grand palace early in its history, it served as a royal residence.
