Interior Views

Inside a tower showing the slits for archers.

The Chapel of St. John the Evangelist in the White Tower was used to store government papers.  As you can see, it is once more being used for its intended purpose.

This is the interior of Bloody Tower fixed up to show what it might have looked like while Sir Walter Raleigh was imprisoned there.  Most prisoners at the Tower didn't have it this good, and as a good American I must use the example of Henry Laurens, President of the Continental Congress, whose health suffered during his fifteen month stay.

St Thomas's Tower atop Traitors' Gate was used for many purposes.

This is a recreation of royal accommodation in Wakefield Tower in the times of Henry III.  The unfortunate and insane Henry VI was later imprisoned in this tower.  It was also later used by the Records Office.
