I visited the Tower because I have an English Heritage membership and therefore didn't have to pay for admission. It is a remnant of the old Palace of Westminster and gains its name from the fact that is was a secure store tower for the Palace, and latterly for historic documents. Architecturally there is not much to see, though there are some interesting original details and English Heritage have added exhibits about the history of the Tower and the Palace, which no longer exists, and some of the items and documents that were stored there.
Interesting, but not a must-see if you have limited time.
