Tower of London

900 Jahre Geschichte sind in den dicken, mit Türmen versehenen Mauern des Tower of London verankert. Ursprünglich wurde der Tower of London 1066 von Wilhelm dem Eroberer als Festung erbaut und im Laufe der Jahre von verschiedenen Monarchen erweitert. Sein markantestes Merkmal ist auch sein ältester Turm, der White Tower, dessen Erbauung auf das Jahr 1078 durch Wilhelm dem Eroberer als Symbol der normannischen Überlegenheit zurückgeht. Obwohl der Tower of London als königliche Residenz, Waffenkammer und Münzstätte genutzt wird, ist er vor allem für seine Funktion als Gefängnis und als Ort zahlreicher Hinrichtungen, insbesondere von Anne Boleyn und Katharina Howard, bekannt. Elisabeth I., Sir Walter Raleigh und Prinz Edward V. sind einige der anderen berühmten Persönlichkeiten, die hier gefangen gehalten wurden. Geschichten von Verrat, Verschwörung und Spionage sind in diesen historischen Mauern allgegenwärtig und unzählige Geheimnisse warten nur darauf, entdeckt zu werden. Ein weiteres Kuriosum sind die Raben, die die britische Krone schützen sollen. Heute ist der Tower of London ein Museum und die Heimat der fabelhaften Kronjuwelen. Führungen durch das Schloss werden von den Yeomen Warders, im Volksmund auch die Beefeaters genannt, durchgeführt.
