This book reveals the fascinating stories, dramatic events and colourful characters that make up the Tower of London’s remarkably long and varied history. Written from a social perspective, it presents a fresh appraisal of this world-famous site and sets it apart from any other available book. It offers a comprehensive history of the fortress, from its Roman origins right up to the present day. With over 200 colour illustrations and a comprehensive and chronological narrative divided into thematic chapters, it conveys brilliantly the many and varied stories which make up the Tower’s history – from the menagerie and royal mint to the roll call of its famous prisoners. The story of the Tower of London is, in many respects, the story of England. When building work began on the fortress, the capital was little more than a small town with no more than 10,000 inhabitants. Almost 1,000 years later, the fortress still stands as a symbol of royal power, pomp and ceremony, tradition, heritage, military might, treachery and torture. Its myriad roles are reflected in the complex series of buildings that make up this formidable, magnificent fortress – an iconic site that still attracts millions of visitors from across the world each year.

The Millennium Bridge is the first London Bridge across the Thames since Tower Bridge in 1894. It represents a unique collaboration of architect, sculptor and engineer (Sir Norman Foster, Sir Anthony Caro and Chris Wise of Ove Arup), brought together by an FT-sponsored competition which was the catalyst for an historic cross-river partnership involving, amongst others, the city of London and Southwark boroughs. The Bridge links St Pauls to the Tate Gallery at Bankside and is expected to play a significant role, alongside the Tate and New Globe Theatre, in the regeneration of the south side of the river. This book is a celebration of this London landmark, describing a remarkable marriage of design and engineering.
