Tower Hill is an elevated place just outside the limits of

the City of London in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets,

which contains some most famous historical spots

such as Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

Tower of London is a historic monument in central London, England,

on the north bank of the River Thames.

It is located within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets

and is separated from the eastern edge of the City of London.

Tower Horror: Grim, grey, and awe-inspiring, the Tower has dominated

the London landscape and the pages of history since its construction

by William the Conqueror in 1078.

Over the next five hundred years it evolved into

a magnificent Royal Palace, home to successive monarchs,

but it is its sinister reputation that brings the visitors flocking

in their millions to hear tales of imprisonment, torture, and execution.

The names of those who passed through Traitorís Gate to be

thereafter lost to the world read like a whoís who of English history.

Anne Boleyn and many others spent their final days,

months or even years incarcerated here.

 

The Princes in the Tower, Edward V of England and his brother,

Richard of Shrewsbury, 1st Duke of York,

were two sons of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville.

The boys were sent to the Bloody Tower by their uncle Richard,

Duke of Gloucester, in 1483 when he became Richard III,

both boys mysteriously disappeared.

It was always assumed that they had been murdered on Richardís instructions

and their bodies buried somewhere within the grim fortress.

When two skeletons were uncovered beneath a staircase of

the White Tower in 1674 they were presumed to be the remains of

the little princes and afforded royal burial in Westminster Abbey.

 

Trinity Square Gardens is an elevated spot north-west of

the Tower of London.

This square is nice comfortable place for working people,

couples and tourists to get relaxed.

And this place is also known as one of most haunted spots of London

since public executions of high-profile criminals

were carried out on the hill.

A lot of Kings and great statesman,

Sir Thomas More were executed here.
