The Tower of London - London - England. Famous Landmarks.
 
03:15
The Tower of London - London - England. Famous Landmarks. Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress, known as the 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 White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078, and was a resented symbol of oppression, inflicted upon London by the new ruling elite. 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. As a whole, the Tower is a complex of several buildings set within two concentric rings of defensive walls and a moat. There were several phases of expansion, mainly under Kings Richard the Lionheart, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The general layout established by the late 13th century remains despite later activity on the site. The Tower of London has played a prominent role in English history. It was besieged several times and controlling it has been important to controlling the country. The Tower has served variously as an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public records office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. From the early 14th century until the reign of Charles II, a procession would be led from the Tower to Westminster Abbey on the coronation of a monarch. In the absence of the monarch, the Constable of the Tower is in charge of the castle. This was a powerful and trusted position in the medieval period. In the late 15th century the castle was the prison of the Princes in the Tower. Under the Tudors, the Tower became used less as a royal residence, and despite attempts to refortify and repair the castle its defences lagged behind developments to deal with artillery. The peak period of the castle's use as a prison was the 16th and 17th centuries, when many figures who had fallen into disgrace, such as Elizabeth I before she became queen, were held within its walls. This use has led to the phrase "sent to the Tower". Despite its enduring reputation as a place of torture and death, popularised by 16th-century religious propagandists and 19th-century writers, only seven people were executed within the Tower before the World Wars of the 20th century. Executions were more commonly held on the notorious Tower Hill to the north of the castle, with 112 occurring there over a 400-year period. In the latter half of the 19th century, institutions such as the Royal Mint moved out of the castle to other locations, leaving many buildings empty. Anthony Salvin and John Taylor took the opportunity to restore the Tower to what was felt to be its medieval appearance, clearing out many of the vacant post-medieval structures. In the First and Second World Wars, the Tower was again used as a prison, and witnessed the executions of 12 men for espionage. After the Second World War, damage caused during the Blitz was repaired and the castle reopened to the public. Today the Tower of London is one of the country's most popular tourist attractions. Under the ceremonial charge of the Constable of the Tower, it is cared for by the charity Historic Royal Palaces and is protected as a World Heritage Site. The ghost of Anne Boleyn, beheaded in 1536 for treason against Henry VIII, allegedly haunts the chapel of St Peter ad Vincula, where she is buried, and has been said to walk around the White Tower carrying her head under her arm. Other ghosts include Henry VI, Lady Jane Grey, Margaret Pole, and the Princes in the Tower.

Top London Attractions - Tower of London - England United Kingdom - Tower of London History
 
00:47
Are you searching for the top attractions in London which you will need to visit while you are in the city? There are a couple of ones to be mentioned which people always know about and visit without even searching, one of these touristic attractions in London is the Tower of London. The history of the Tower of London was written first when William the conqueror built a mighty stone tower at the centre of his London fortress back in the 1070's, defeated Londoners back at that time used to look at this tower in awe, which is exactly the same thing now when all those millions of visitors come to check it on a yearly basis. The Tower of London is not just a building that astonished people when they come to visit it from the outside, but it is also the home for different traditions that are still living in it until today, such as the Ceremony of the Keys as well as the ghost stories and the terrible tales of torture and execution. The Tower of London is also the protector of the Crown Jewels, it is home of the Yeoman Warders and its legendary guardians, the pampered ravens and it has also been home to a wide array of institutions that include the Royal Mint, the Royal Armouries and even a zoo. Through the long history of the Tower of London, it has been known as the secure place where the royal possessions were guarded and even where the royal family itself was guarded in the times of war and invasions. Over all those years, the Tower of London was used as a luxurious place by the monarchs, but we should never forget that this tower has been always seen as a symbol of fear as well and this goes back to the rivals and enemies who the kings and queens used to imprison within the walls of the tower. The Tower of London is also known as the White Tower and it is located on the north bank of River Thames in central London; it is found just beside the famous Tower Bridge of London which is one of the other top attractions of the city. The Tower is a complex of several buildings which are located within two concentric rings of defensive walls and a moat, and there were several phases of expansion in the 12th and 13th centuries which were mainly done under Kings Richard I, Henry III and Edward I. With all the things that have written the history of this huge castle in London and the different things it is considered responsible for, like protecting the royal possessions and the royal family at times, it has also been used as a prison in the 16th and 17 centuries and there were many famous figures who have fallen into disgrace during that time, like Elizabeth I before she became a queen, Sir Walter Raleigh and Elizabeth Throckmorton who were all held within the walls of the castle. This use of the castle actually led to the appearance of the phrase "sent to the tower", but despite this reputation about the place when it comes to torture and execution, there were only seven people executed within the tower before the World Wars of the 20th century. After the World Wars, the castle was restored several times and was used for different reasons, it was also used for executions once again and eventually it was restored and opened to the public so that they could come in and check the place. Today, the Tower of London is one of the top attractions of the city that is visited by millions of people per year. The Tower of London is cared for by the charity Historic Royal Palaces and it is protected as a World Heritage Site under the ceremonial charge of the Constable of the Tower. When London is mentioned in any conversation there is, there are a couple of touristic attractions which are usually mentioned. The Tower of London is one of those attractions as well as the Tower Bridge that is located right next to it - and it is believed that the two names are related to one another - but there is also Buckingham Palace which is considered the most famous now in the city (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z57xeLn1Zaw), Big Ben which identifies London as being an important attraction in it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_pETuPDFSM), London Eye which is now known as Coco-Cola London Eye and which gives people views all over the city (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHtQq7wQTQc), there is also the Chinatown in London (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SXA8F6fpZI), London Aquarium (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ij6ebsE3EF8) and the famous Natural History Museum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=staR4hsWHzc). Looking back into the history of the places that you visit in every single city you travel to will bring lots of information and will give you the chance to try and picture it all, adding new information to your mind.

Olympic torch makes spectacular entrance at Tower of London
 
03:54
(20 Jul 2012) STORYLINE: After years of preparation and months of build-up, the Olympic flame finally arrived in London on Friday, an escort of commandos dropping from the Sky with the torch at one of UK capital's most famous landmarks, the Tower of London. Royal Marine Martyn Williams carried the Olympic torch as he rappelled down from a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter into the Tower on the shore of the River Thames. The commando's grand entrance plunged the symbol of the games into the city's historic heart, bringing Olympic pageantry to the British capital that last held the event in 1948. Crowds lined the city's famed river banks to see the torch arrive, while Yeoman warders, the ceremonial Tower guards popularly known as Beefeaters, looked on from inside the landmark's grounds. British Olympic hero Dame Kelly Holmes toured the ramparts with the torch held aloft before passing over to Londoner Abul Kasam who was chosen as a torch bearer for his volunteer work in the city. For Londoners, the arrival of the torch ignites a time of excitement, as well as four weeks of extreme crowds and transport strains. Month of heavy rain and a constant stream of headlines about the failure of security contractor G4S have also cast an atmosphere of gloom over the build up to the games. However it's a gloom London Mayor Boris Johnson says will be lifted by the torch's arrival. "As it spreads through the city I know that it's radiance will dispel any last remaining clouds of dampness and anxiety that may hover over some parts of the media in this country," he bellowed from the tower. "It will spread the crackling bushfire of Olympic enthusiasm throughout this city and the country," he added. The enthusiasm is already well and truly with Holmes, a British double gold medal winner in 2004. "To be able to bring the flame into London for the first time, into the Tower of London, run around the tower of London with the Olympic flame, our flame, that's going the light the cauldron in a week's time - I mean what do you say? It's amazing, amazing," she gushed after the ceremony. The flame has been to every corner of the United Kingdom on its 8,000-mile (12,900 kilometre) journey ahead of its showcase moment at the Olympics' July 27 opening ceremony. Friday was Day 63 of its 70-day journey, which has included travel on boats, planes, horses and hot air balloons.

Intruder Steals Tower of London Keys
 
01:04
An intruder reportedly snatches the keys to the Tower of London. A brazen thief has reportedly targeted the famous Tower of London. According to reports, an incident occurred on November 6th. A female official for the Historic Royal Palaces claims the security was slacking, stating that "procedures were not carried out to the expected standard", which allowed an intruder to get through the first gate. Several keys went missing including ones for conference rooms, drawbridges and a restaurant. The suspected prowler was soon caught on the grounds by guardsmen, but thus far no arrests have been made. The Crown Jewels, which reside at the Tower were never in any danger during the incident and all locks were changed shortly after. Founded in 1066, the Tower of London has served as a royal court, a prison, a mint, and an armory. This is where thousands of people were imprisoned, brutally tortured, and executed. There have been numerous reports of haunted spirits at the Tower of London. Queen Anne Boleyn and Thomas a Becket are two ghosts that were reportedly spotted on site.
