Tower of London
The Tower of London was founded by William the Conquerer almost 1,000 years ago. A huge stone stronghold – In places the tower is nearly 100 feet heigh and its walls 15 feet thick – the tower was built on the banks of the River Thames to protect London and to assert the power of the King. It continued to house English Kings and Queens until after the death of Henry VII in 1509. Its use as a prison began in the reign of Henry III and in 1303 it served as a treasury when the crown jewels were moved here from Westminster Abbey and they remain here to this day. The Tower of London was still used as a prison as recently as World War II. Many famous prisoners have been executed here including Thomas More, Lady Jane Grey and Anne Boleyn, whose ghost is said to haunt the tower. The tower is also famous for the yeoman guards, or 'Beefeaters', and for the Ravens – according to legend, at least 6 ravens must remain here or the Tower and the monarchy will fall.
Central London/Zone 2
The dome-shaped building, which now houses The O2's Entertainment Avenue and arena, was originally constructed as the Millennium Dome and housed the Millennium Experience, a major exhibition to celebrate the start of the third millennium. The exhibition opened to the public on 1 January 2000 and ran until 31 December 2000; however, the project and exhibition was the subject of considerable political controversy and it did not attract the number of visitors anticipated, leading to recurring financial problems. In popular usage, the dome canopy is often still called The Dome, reflecting the substantial, and often adverse, publicity given to its building in the late 20th century.
