"The Tower of London is a unique historic institution: royal place, fortress, and state prison, besides being the original Record Office and Zoo.  There is no institution in the world quite comparable.
But it also offers a mirror in which much of English history may be seen - not only the executions of famous personages, but coronation processions, comic episodes like Colonel Blood's attempt to steal the Crown and Crown Jewels; Mr Pepys and Sir Robert Walpole holding a levee of their friends; much entertaining; escapes over the walls and across the moat or like the Jacobite Lord in his wife's clothing."
