Across the road from the imposing Houses of Parliament, this simple, three-storey, 14th century tower often gets overlooked on the tourist trail. One of only two buildings forming part of the Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834, the Jewel Tower boasts a stunning, untouched 14th century ribbed vault that more than warrants the trip across the road from the main Westminster parliament buildings. Built in 1365, the tower - also known as the King's Privy Wardrobe - was used by King Edward III to store his treasures and wardrobe. Remains of the original moat and medieval quay designed to secure the building can still be seen today. Items on display now include the Speaker's robes from the collection of the Houses of Parliament and an interactive touch-screen computer providing a virtual reality tour of the history of both Houses of Parliament.

Best for:
14th century vaulted ceiling, medieval remains and ruins.
