Year 7 Visit the Tower of London
Published on 01/12/17
On Thursday 30 November, Year 7 enjoyed an interesting visit to the Tower of London, complete with a flurry of snow! Pupils explored the Tower and grounds in groups, each having the opportunity to see the Crown Jewels on display. Every group also learnt from a guide in full costume about how William the Conqueror established the Tower following the Norman invasion in 1066 before building the more permanent White Tower structure around 1078. Once complete, the Tower would have had the same impact that the Shard has on London today!
