While the central downtown area is rather small – and quite walkable – the city offers a wide variety of sites, from historic buildings to museums of modern art.
Set immediately north of the Tower of London, right in the heart of Tower Hill, stands one of the most substantial and impressive surviving sections of the London Wall. Built around AD 200, the Roman wall not only provided defense and security to the citizens of London, but also represented the status of the city itself. Today, many of the buildings which had formerly hidden it have been cleared away, and visitors to the site can enjoy a clear view of the monument that defined both the size and shape of the city for over a millennium. There’s no cost to visit and it’s open during daylight hours.
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. Built by William the Conquerer in 1078, the castle was used as a prison from 1100 to 1952. It has served as an armoury, a treasury, home of the Royal Mint and holding place for the Crown Jewels of England. The Tower is a popular tourist attraction, so buy tickets in advance on their website.
