The Jewel Tower was built around 1365 to house Edward III’s treasures and was known as the ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’. It is a surviving element of the royal Palace of Westminster. The Jewel Tower and the surrounding site of Westminster Palace were declared a World Heritage site in 1987. Inside the Jewel Tower a selection of the around 400 objects associated with the tower that were recovered are on display, including Delftware drinking jars and an Iron Age sword, historiated capitals originating from the Westminster Hall of the 1090s, and weights and measures.
