The Tower of London, officially known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, is a UNSECO World Heritage Site, one of the Historic Royal Palaces, and my all-time favourite city of London attraction for kids – you could spend a whole day there, walking along crenelated battlements with views out over Tower Bridge and the River Thames. It boasts cafes and shops and bench-fringed grassy areas in this surprisingly large complex.
