Tower of London building

Tower of London

Explore royal arms and armour at the iconic White Tower within the Tower of London.

For nearly 1,000 years this iconic Norman keep, built by William the Conquerer, has stood by the banks of the river Thames; a symbol of royal power, a royal residence, and home to their organisations of state.

Today it is a flagship museum showcasing the Royal Armouries’ glittering collection of arms, armour and historical artefacts.

Admission to the Royal Armouries in the White Tower is free, but a ticket must be purchased for entry to the Tower of London.

Visit the Historic Royal Palaces website for tickets and prices.
