Tips:
1.  Definitely see the Crown Jewels.  A must-see!
2.  Do go for the Free Yeoman Warden's (Beefeater) Tour.  They are really very entertaining!






The Traitor's Gate



The Crown Jewels


Unfortunately, you are not allowed to take pictures but this is definitely a must-see.  You will see the crowns, scepters, and maces they use for the coronation, opening of the parliament, etc. 








The White Tower and the Royal Armories






















The Execution Site

The executions are normally up in the tower hill, but sometimes, they do it here in the tower of London and this is the site where people like Thomas Moore, Queen Anne, and Queen Catherine are executed.  Their bodies lie in the chapel near it.



No. 5 Queen Site

This is where Queen Catherine was imprisoned before dragged to execution near there
