  View of the Tower of London, London, England   Tower Hill.

The the north-west corner of the Tower of London - the view you would see when approaching from the Underground at Tower Hill Station or Tower Gateway Station. You can just see two of the towers on the White Tower on the left edge of the picture on the skyline.

One of London's well known landmarks the White Tower was started in the early 1080s by William the Conqueror and various monarchs have added to the fortifications since.

It is open to the public and is often included in the 2for1 offers and we wouldn't even consider going in without that offer because of the exhorbitant entry fees.

  View of Tower Bridge, London, England   Tower Hill.

A short distance from the Tower of London is another well known landmark - Tower Bridge. It is not, as some people call it, London Bridge. London Bridge is the next bridge upstream and is very boring by comparison.

If you pay the entrance fee you get to walk across the upper level walkway.
