    Royal Palace and Fortress, very popular as the Tower of London, is a historic castle situated on the north bank of the River Thames in central London, England. It places within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Tower Hill is an open place that separates the castle from the eastern edge of the City of London. The castle was built at the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The White Tower is the most famous part of the Royal Palace and Fortress, which also gives the entire castle its name. It was built by William the Conqueror in 1078, resented as a symbol of oppression, imposed upon London by the new elite ruler of that time. The palace was utilized as a jail since not less than 1100, whereas that was not its prime purpose. An impressive castle early in its annals, it assisted as a regal residence. As an entire, the Tower is a convoluted of some structures set inside two concentric rings of defensive partitions and a moat. There were some stages of expansion, mostly under Kings Richard the Lionheart, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The general layout established by the late 13th century continues regardless of subsequent undertaking on the site.
    The Tower of London has played a very vital role in English history. It was surrounded by many other forces of those times. Its control had great importance. There many story about the ghost of Queen Anne Boleyn, beheaded in 1536 for betrayal of trust against King Henry VIII. It is a must watch place. I recommend you to visit Royal Palace and Fortress.
