The Jewel Tower dates back almost 650 years and is an intriguing visitor attraction in the heart of Westminster. It was built around 1365 to house Edward III's treasures and was known as the `King's Privy Wardrobe'.

One of only two buildings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834, the tower features a 14th century ribbed vault.

Learn about Jewel Tower's changing role over the centuries in our three floor exhibition. Marvel at the model of the 'lost' medieval palace of Westminster and replicas of precious objects and areas of set dressing including an 18th-century clerk's office. Located in central London, the Jewel Tower is ideally located as part of your day out in London.
