Best Palces in london that you need to visit

Tours in England

One of the most visited countries in the world, England offers travellers endless possibilities when it comes to fun things to see and do. Part of the beautiful British Isles, this small but influential country is simply bursting with fascinating history, exciting cities and rich cultural traditions. Historic sites are found at every turn, from old castles dotting the picturesque countryside and colleges dating back to the Middle Ages to ancient Roman sites and centuries old royal palaces.

Stonehenge

   Stonehenge, just 10 mi north of Salisbury on Salisbury Plain, is Britain's most famous ancient monument, and one of its most popular tourist attractions
      The stones we see today represent Stonehenge in ruin. Many of the original stones have fallen or been removed by previous generations for home construction or road repair. There has been serious damage to some of the smaller bluestones resulting from close visitor contact (prohibited since 1978) and the prehistoric carvings on the larger sarsen stones show signs of significant wear.

STONEHENGE
Modern theories speculate that the stones were dragged by roller and sledge from the inland mountains to the headwaters of Milford Haven. There they were loaded onto rafts, barges or boats and sailed along the south coast of Wales, then up the Rivers Avon and Frome to a point near present-day Frome in Somerset. From this point, so the theory goes, the stones were hauled overland, again, to a place near Warminster in Wiltshire, approximately 6 miles away. From there, it's back into the pool for a slow float down the River Wylye to Salisbury, then up the Salisbury Avon to West Amesbury, leaving only a short 2 mile drag from West Amesbury to the Stonehenge site.

Tower Of London

Tower Of London
The Tower of London is the oldest palace, fortress and prison in Europe. William the Conqueror chose the same site as Claudius, the Roman Emperor, who had built a fort here over a thousand years before. Its strategic position on the north river bank immediately within the south east boundary of the City Wall controls the Thames, London Bridge and the defends the City. 

According to the Domesday Book of 1086, East London had a population of 700 people. The Constable of the Tower exercised certain rights over the eleven hamlets to the east for the recruitment and pressing of labour. These became known as 'Tower Hamlets'. 

The original tower, known as the White Tower derives its name from the fact that in 1240 Henry III had the building whitewashed ! As king succeeded king the fortress was continuously enlarged and towards the end of the 12th century Richard I added to its might by encircling it with a moat fed by the River Thames. When the moat was drained in 1830, many human bones were found.
