Tower of London
is one of Britain's premier historic sites, drawing some 2.5
million tourists and Londoners per year. Fortunately, the nearly 1,000-year-old
castle has plenty of room for crowds, with 18 acres (7.3 hectares) of towers,
walls, and green space overlooking the banks of the River Thames. A recently
completed 8-year, £20 million restoration and
improvement project has made this UNESCO World Heritage Site even more
attractive, accessible, and convenient for visitors.
