For over 900 years, The Tower of London has been standing guard over the capital. As a Royal Palace, fortress, prison, place of execution, arsenal, Royal Mint, Royal Zoo and jewel house, it has witnessed many great events in British history.
View of the Tower of London from across the River Thames
The Tower of London was originally built by William the Conqueror, following his successful invasion of England in 1066.
The Tower of London is perhaps better known as a prison. The prisoners would be brought, via the river, from Westminster where they would have been tried and crowds would wait on the river bank to find out the verdict to see if they would be treated to the spectacle of a public execution. The executioner, with his long sharp axe would stand behind the accused on the boat. If the accused was guilty he would point his axe towards the victim and if not guilty he would point it away. People knew that if found guilty there would be a public execution 48 hours later.
The responsibility for looking after the prisoners was given to the Yeomen Warders or Beefeaters (These guards, although looking very similar, are different from the Yeomen of the Guard).
The Yeomen Warders originate from twelve Yeoman of the Guards, who were once private bodyguards of Henry VIII. The Yeomen Warders job title is "Yeoman Warder of Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London, and Members of the Sovereign's Body Guard of the Yeoman Guard Extraordinary".
In the centre of the Tower of London is the famous White Tower. It is the oldest part of the fortress and was built on the site of the Norman Keep built by William the Conqueror.
The Tower, or Bloody Tower as it is known, has been host to many famous executions and imprisonments, including those of Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard, Lady Jane Grey and Sir Walter Raleigh.
Many people have been locked in the Tower, for religious beliefs or suspected treason. Famous prisoners have included Anne Boleyn, Sir Walter Raleigh and Elizabeth I.
Many Tudor's prisoners entered the Tower of London through the Traitors' Gate.
Elizabeth I was held prisoner in the Tower for two months by the order of her half sister, Queen Mary. Mary felt that her throne was being threatened by Elizabeth, so she imprisoned her in the Tower

As well as being a palace and a fortress, the Tower of London has also served as:
Today the Tower of London houses the Crown Jewels and is open to the public as a museum.
The Crown Jewels are housed in this building

Greenwich Treasure Hunt
1. The tunnel
Designed by Sir Alexander Binnie and opened in 1902, the tunnel allowed people who lived south of the river to reach their jobs in the docks of the Isle of Dogs without relying on the expensive, unreliable ferry. At each end is a glazed cupola. What is written on them?
2. The market
Greenwich market now specialises mostly in arts and crafts. There’s a stone above the entrance on this side, but when was it erected? And we’d like the answer in Roman numerals, please (you should find nine letters).
3. Old Royal Naval College
Taking care to admire the views across the river to your right, walk further east to the collection of Wren’s white buildings and clipped green lawns that make up the college. A couple of minutes in, you’ll find a square to your left with a fountain in the middle. With your best lookout’s eye, try to spot the stone needle. Although most of the memorials in these parts are to British sailors, you’ll find one to a French sailor who took part in the search for the ‘illustrious navigator’ Sir John Franklin in the Arctic in 1851. In 1853 this Frenchman fell through a crack in the ice near Cape Bowden and died. What was his surname?
4. Painted Gallery
The pictures on the walls and ceilings of this gallery (to the north of the square above) are dedicated to the English monarchs, particularly William and Mary. They were painted by Sir James Thornhill in the early XVIII-th century. Take one of the guides on the right, just up the steps as you come in. On the far western wall you’ll find a painting by Thornhill of the royal family, with St Paul’s Cathedral in the background. In the bottom right is the artist himself with arms outstretched (some say because he was asking for more money). He was paid just £3 per square yard for painting the ceiling. How many pounds per square yard did he get for painting the walls?
5. National Maritime Museum
Head north, cross the road, and stroll between the gigantic buoys (one red, one green) leading to the Maritime Museum. With more than 2 million items in its collection, this thoroughly ship-shape institution is the largest of its kind in the world. Among the naval portraits and historical artifacts there are plenty of hands-on activities for kids. Our clue here is hidden on the upper deck. Amid the collection of telescopes and astrolabes, you’ll find a 3D model of the universe dating back to 1624. It’s an ‘Italian armillary sphere’, but what is the last name of its creator?
6. The Royal Observatory
If you’re in Greenwich, the Observatory is a must. Somewhere among the time-related exhibits, there’s a device that was used to check on the timekeeping of London’s bus drivers in the 1920s. But it’s not doing a great job now; the hands have stopped at 11 minutes past which hour?
