Pictures of the Tower of London

The Tower of London is officially known as Her Majesty's Palace and Fortress, The Tower of London. Although, it is not used by the queen any more.

The first known fortifications on the site were built over 2000 years ago. A Roman fortress was build by Claudius in what the Romans called Londinium. The Roman fortress was mainly wooden in contrast to the big stone castle you can see now.

There is a lot to see in the Tower of London. Due to the number of pictures I've divided them into a couple of sections. Click on any of the pictures below or on the links in the menu to the right to view and read more about the Tower of London.
