Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.
Founded in 1828, ZSL London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo and is today involved in progressive conservation programs to protect African elephants, black rhinos and many other species.

This enormous and lavish complex was built for the decadent Henry VIII, and it very much retains a sense of regal grandeur (though no royal has lived here since the 18th century). It features 60 acres of gardens, six acres of Tudor and Baroque buildings, and 750 acres of parkland. You can easily spend a day exploring the site and the costumed guides add to the period touch. If time is of the essence, the highlights include Henry VIII’s State Apartments, the Tudor Kitchens and the Chapel Royal.
Kew Gardens occupy a whopping 121 hectares and have been on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 2003. The abundant flora and fauna will make you forget that you're in the London metropolis! Inside the gardens, you'll find an 18th-century Chinese pagoda, ornamental buildings, speciality plant houses, and a breathtaking treetop walkway that runs through the canopy of a forest glade and consists of a 200-metre walkway 18 metres above the ground. The grounds are also home to Kew Palace, initially bought by George III as a palace for the royal children. Many princes and princesses have been raised here. Later, it was put into use as a summer residence for the British Royals.
