Tower Hill

Category: Tourist attractions

Tower Hill is an elevated spot outside the Tower of London and just outside the limits of the City of London in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

Belonging to one of the oldest parts of London, archeological evidence shows that there was a settling on the hill in the bronze age and much later a Roman village that was burnt down during the Boadicea uprising.

The church All Hallows-by-the-Tower is renowned for fragments of Romanesque architecture dating back to the year 680.

Public executions of high-profile criminals were carried out on the hill.
