Places To Visit

(Continued)



Tower Of London

TOWER OF LONDON

London, England

Although officially a royal residence in the Tudor period, the Tower was used primarily as a prison. Traitors were usually kept here. Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth's mother, was executed on Tower Green in 1536, and Elizabeth herself was kept a prisoner within the Bell Tower for several weeks during the troubled reign of her sister. Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, was also imprisoned here at the same time for involvement in his father's scheme to make Lady Jane Grey queen.
