Jewel Tower


London Landmarks

In the heart of bustling Westminster, this iconic tower dates back 700 years and was built by King Edward III as the ‘Kings privy wardrobe’. Originally located within the three-storey building were precious jewels, gold and silver, all forming part of the King's own personal collection. Altering its purpose over time, in 1621 the records of the House of Lords were transported to the Jewel Tower for special protection. This was the last known purpose of the Tower, before it passed hands to the government, being bequeathed to English Heritage.

Today, the historical tower has become somewhat of a tourist attraction, dedicated to the fascinating history of parliament, past and present. Artifacts on display include an Anglo Saxon sword, historic weights and measures. To complete your visit, we recommend visiting the third floor via the impressive spiral staircase. Here, you can enjoy panoramic views all across Westminster and truly take in the fantastic historical setting. On a nice day, the gardens are also opened-up for al fresco picnics.

Opening times: Saturday & Sunday 10am - 4pm

Prices: Adult £3.50; Child £2.10; Concessions £3.20
