The Tower of London – White Tower

Inside the White Tower

The White Tower contains mainly suits of armour and weaponry.   In the days of sophisticated construction, a suit of armour could cost as much as a house and was often more of a status symbol than for military purpose.   Nevertheless, when in use, a knight and horse in full armour at the gallop would be terrifying and the equivalent of a modern-day tank.
