This hidden gem, which is part of English Heritage, dates back to 1365. Back then it housed Edward III’s treasures and was known as the ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’. Some walk-in wardrobe!
Most of the medieval Palace of Westminster, of which this was part, disappeared in a fire in 1834. The Jewel Tower is only one of two buildings that were saved.
Focal points across three floors include 14th century ribbed ceilings and an anti-clockwise spiral staircase; a cunningly designed defence feature.
There is also a small adjacent garden.
