The Tower of London

THE TOWER OF LONDON (London, England, UK)

Dating to the Norman Conquest (1066) the castle, inflicted by the ruling French, was resented as a symbol of oppression. It contains several buildings within two rings of walls and a moat. Sometimes a royal residence, armory, treasury, menagerie, and home of the Crown Jewels of England, it was also famously used as a prison from 1100 to 1952. Today it's a popular tourist attraction.
