Guide to The Tower of London, one of the most recognisable buildings in the UK. The book tells us the story of the castle from conception to current use. The chapters are broken down into its history century by century and then the various uses of the building/buildings. Comes in bitesize chunks which makes the information easier to digest and is liberally interspersed with illustrations. Informative and enjoyable.
