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

This is a great spot to visit if you're keenly interested in the finer details of British history. Focus here is on the wealth, record keeping of early British rule. As well it gives a perspective on the former westminster palace, which this was a...More

Close to Houses of Parliament and an interesting story. Good interpretation boards. A site that English Heritage look after in their usual excellent way

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

Opposite the grandeur of the Houses of Parliament you are likely to miss this lovely tower. It has been a wardrobe for the king, a document house for the House of Lords, and housed the origins of the department of standards for weights and measures....More

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
