The Tower of London - It is a very ancient fortress, which commands the Thames, and is a mile in circumference. It was originally a royal palace, and consisted only of that part of it which is called the White Tower, and was built by William the Conqueror, in the year 1079.
At present the Tower is a repository for the national archives, a mint for coining money, a magnificent armoury, the jewel office, which contains the royal regalia, and other apartments furnished with various objects of curiosity.
The wild beasts are generally visited the first, as their situation presents itself on entering the outer gate.
At the principal gate of the Tower, a yeoman of the guard receives the curious visitors, and accompanies them to all the different places which are worthy of their attention.
The different prices to be paid for seeing the curiosities [with some edits for clarity],
The lions, each person - 6d
Train of artillery, each person - 2d
Horse armoury, each person - 3d
Spanish armoury, each person - 2d
Foot armoury, each person - 3d
Regalia, in company - 1s. 0d
Regalia, Alone - 1s. 6d
But if a single person desires to see the foot armoury, train of artillery, horse armoury, and Spanish armoury, he pays twice the price above mentioned.
