10. Tower of London, Tower Hamlets
If you don’t go to any of the other places on this list you should visit the Tower of London, which is a history lovers paradise.
The Tower is a historic castle that was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and has seen many grisly scenes from history within its walls, such as King Richard III having his two young nephews imprisoned, killed and then buried at the site.
The execution of Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey and many others occurred at the Tower.
Today the site is where the Beefeaters reside and offer tours of the Tower and grounds. The crown jewels are stored here and on display to the public.
