While you enjoy the stay in our Hotel, it is obvious to visit some of the prominent attractions that the city of London beholds. Selected as one the four UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the city, the Tower of London is one of the popular attractions you must visit.
The Tower of London which is used variously throughout its history as a royal palace, an armoury, a prison, an execution chamber, a zoo, a barracks and a jewel house, this working royal castle offers a stunning insight into 1,000 years of history.
But, nothing more amazing than the magnificent Crown Jewels on display here, made up of nearly 24,000 gems. There are tales of great sacrifice and years of history behind this magnificent Crown which survived the ruins. Preserved as one of the powerful symbols of monarchy, the Crown Jewels are a unique, priceless collection of crowns and other sacred and ceremonial objects, known as Coronation Regalia, displayed at the Tower of London.
You’ll find the Crown Jewels well under armed guard in the Jewel House. These gems are a unique working collection of royal regalia and are still regularly used by The Queen for important national ceremonies, such as the State Opening of Parliament. Make sure to look out for the ‘in use’ signs.
Among the jewels adorning objects in this dazzling collection are some of the world’s most exceptional diamonds. The biggest are Cullinan I and Cullinan II, the largest top-quality cut diamonds in the world and the extraordinary historic Koh-I-Noor diamond from India.
The Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection, are the most powerful symbols of the British Monarchy and hold deep religious and cultural significance in our nation’s history. The mystique and beauty of the diamonds and precious jewels in the royal regalia have always held an unparalleled allure to visitors from across the globe
