Part of the original Palace of Westminster. Standing just opposite the Houses of Parliament, this originally moated medieval tower is one of only two surviving remnants of the great Royal Palace of Westminster. Built in c.1365 by Edward III, it guarded the 'King's Privy Wardrobe', a treasury of personal royal valuables and rich robes.
The interior displays a fine 14th century bibbed vaulted ceiling and an exhibition covering all three floors of the tower that highlights Jewel Tower's history and changing role over the centuries. Features include a model of the 'lost' medieval palace of Westminster, replicas of precious objects and areas of set dressing including an 18th century clerk's office.
