The Lloyds of London building (Bank tube) designed by Richard Rogers is worth a visit- it resembles a space rocket ready to lauch. The building is a marked contrast to the classically designed buildings next door. (Rogers also designed an equally controversial complex in Paris, the Pompidou centre) You’ll either love or hate it’s garish construction, but there’s no denying it’s impact.
The Old Bailey (St Pauls Tube) is England’s most infamous court house, and has witnessed most of London’s most serious criminal cases. Trials taking place are open to the public.
Tower Bridge (Tower Hill tube), built in 1894 is one of the finest, most recognisable bridges in the World and enjoys breathtaking views over London.
The Tower of London (Tower Hill tube), founded nearly a millennium ago has transmuted from castle to prison to palace, and for many was their last sight on Earth. The history of the Tower of London is both fascinating and diverse and today houses the Crown Jewels, William the Conqueror’s White Tower,the Traitor Gate and the Bloody Tower. Allow the best part of a morning or an afternoon to take it all in.
