25 24-Pounder Cannon at Tower of London in London, England

There are so many things to see and do at the Tower of London. That is why 2.8 million people annually visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among the highlights are marveling at the Crown Jewels, admiring the 21 towers and learning about the fortress’ nearly 1,000 years of history. Discover the legend requiring six ravens be maintained within the castle complex. Explore the Fusilier Museum’s displays on the famous infantry regiment. Walk along the 13th century walls plus cringe at the torture chamber exhibits at Wakefield Tower. Take time to read the signs on artifacts such as this bronze, 24-pounder canon made in 1607. First time visitors are easily overwhelmed. So consider taking a one-hour tour offered by Yeoman Warders, better known as Beefeaters.
