London Tourist Attractions

Royal London is full of pageantry, buildings, history and a culture that goes back hundreds of years. Hampton Palace, the home to Henry VIII and his wives is a huge building originally the home to Cardinal Wolsey. A trip there today brings history alive as you walk through the many state apartments and gardens and a visit to the working kitchens is a must. The Tower of London with its vaults holding the Crown Jewels and Yeoman Warders or Beef Eaters is a popular choice for those with a taste for the more bloody side to England’s royal past.
