There are places that have been familiar since early childhood from books, school lessons and countless films. You think you know them and then one day you stand in front of them. And they are exactly as you always imagined them. That’s what happened to me with the Tower.

The Tower of London is actually a whole complex of buildings on the north bank of the Thames. The ring castle with two fortress rings served the English kings as a residence, armoury, workshop, garrison, museum, mint, prison and execution site, among other things. Incidentally, the Tower was originally built in the 11th century as a fortress against the hostile citizens of the city of London..
