The Jewel Tower is the only out of two towers of the medieval Palace of Westminster. It dates back almost 650 years and is an intriguing visitor attraction in the heart of Westminster. It was built to store Edward III’s treasures and was known as the ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’. The current exhibition covers all three floors of the Jewel Tower and highlights its history and changing role over the centuries. Features include a model of the medieval palace of Westminster, replicas of precious objects and areas of set dressing, including an 18th-century clerk’s office.
