Inside the Tower of London

For almost a thousand years, the Tower of London has been a storied castle, a famous prison, and a royal palace. It has more history than anywhere else in Britain, with new stories added every day. This eight-part “hybrid history” series goes behind the Tower walls to meet the unique community of curators, conservators, and Beefeaters keeping this remarkable institution running in the 21st century. We also revisit fascinating stories from the Tower’s past, involving Elizabeth I, the Crown Jewels, the “Nine Days’ Queen,” and more.
