The Tower of London in England

The Tower of London, also known as Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress is historical castle located near the River Thames in London, England. Its foundation can be traced in 1066 during the time of Norman Conquest of England. It served as a royal residence during those times and was also used as a prison around in 1100. The Tower served as an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public records office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.

you can see the embedded date on the image here, that was the time when I visit London and saw this tower. Sad to say, I was not able to go inside. maybe in my next visit, I will go there.
