Visit Edward III's original medieval treasury, the Jewel Tower, located near to the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey
Commissioned by Edward III around 1365, Jewel Tower was originally built to house the King’s personal treasures – hence the name – and had a moat dug around it for extra protection. It was also known as the King’s Privy Wardrobe.
It remains virtually unaltered today and is one of the only two complete buildings remaining from the medieval Palace Of Westminster, the other being Westminster Hall.
Located right across the road from the Houses Of Parliament, the Jewel Tower is right in the middle of one of the key tourist locations with Westminster Abbey and Big Ben both only minutes away by foot.

"My boyfriend and I purchased the London Pass ahead of time to use when we got to London and it was wonderful for public transport, avoiding cues and accessing all the sites without having to fawk out cash or paying per site. This also allowed us to see much more than we normally would have. Because you buy the card at a flat rate you are saving money too! It makes travelling around London a pleasure as a tourist."
