England. It is one of London’s most famous sights and is visited daily by
thousands of tourists. Last year, it was visited by over 2.5 million people.
The oldest part is the White Tower, which gives the castle its name. It was
built by William the Conqueror in about 1068. The rest of the castle was
completed by Edward I in 1285. The castle was used as a palace and a
prison until the 17th century. Many famous prisoners were kept there,
including Sir Thomas More and Princess Elizabeth, the future Elizabeth I. The
young princes, Edward II and the Duke of York, were murdered in the
Bloody Tower by their uncle, Richard III. Anne Boleyn, the second wife of
Henry VIII, was executed in the Tower.

is said that when they finally leave, the kingdom of England will fall. Today there are
only 9 left.
