The fortress, standing on the north bank of the Thames, is over 900 years old. The tower is known as a prison for nobles and prisoners of royal blood. From time to time he became the residence of the monarchs. At different times, the famous humanist Thomas More, the wives of Henry VIII Catherine Howard and Anna Boleyn, the “bloody” Queen Maria Tudor and many others visited the castle. Only in the middle of the 20th century did the Tower cease to function as a prison.
