All reviews westminster palace english heritage members edward iii small donation worth a visit interesting information free entry century moat history surviving parliamentary archives remnants preservation pottery lords
Neat little spot, but best part was the that in the giftshop there were fragments of pottery and bone pipes that you could pick up for a small donation. for a couple of pounds I picked up 2 pieces of 18th century pottery and a...More
I am so upset I didn’t visit this place when I stopped into Westminster and my London Pass was still good. Even though I didn’t get in on my London Pass, this Tower was fascinating with a long and storied history. This tower was safe,...More
The other negative reviews are spot on, this is a truly disappointing stop. And the sad thing is that it could be made into a quality stop. They don't need original items, reproductions would be just fine - it's just that wallpaper trying to display...More
The whole tour can be done in under an hour unless you are really interested in reading every snippet on the walls. It was included as part of the London pass and since we were in the area decided to stop. Interesting information and items...More
The history of the Jewel House is a fascinating one but English Heritage failed to explain it in any depth. I got snippets of information stuck to the walls in each room and some meagre displays. No use of multi-media, which would have explained the...More
This is a small building and it will take about 40 minutes to see everything. It was included in my London pass and since I was in the area decided to stop in and take a look. Very interesting information and items on display but...More
As you'd imagine from it's name, the Jewel Tower was built to house treasure in the 14th century. Laterly, in the 16th century it was subsequently used to house parliamentary records. It's a small three-story building but has a huge wealth of history, having originally...More
Of the times I have been to London, I have never been to the Jewel Tower.
The entry fee is £6, but as I am a Life Member of Historic Scotland, I get free entry. There is a mutual agreement that English Heritage members get...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, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
