An interesting piece of history. Young children may get bored as there isn't much here for them but anybody who loves history will enjoy their visit.

It's located near to the Westminster Abbey, which is a part of Abbey. It was used to place jewels of monarch. There is not much to see, I would like to suggest not to make a separate visit. Coz there are so many things to...More

As members of English Heritage we visited this building, just behind houses of Parliamment. But although some elements were intresting and unique, susch as the old founadtion poles, the overall remains a rather simple museum.

This is a very small exhibit located near Westminster that discusses the primary uses of the Jewel Tower and some of the items that were kept there. A solid portion of the exhibit is recreated or modeled - this may matter to some. The Jewel...More

Take a break from the crowds outside Parliament by slipping into the Jewel Tower. This tiny relic will only take you 30 minutes to view (and I suspect young children will love it). It is surrounded by garden area, as well, so feels like an...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
