A little history of the space…
For over six hundred years kings and queens of England have stored crowns, robes, jewels and other valuable items at the Tower of London.
Since the 17th century, the coronation regalia themselves have been kept at the Tower and this collection, known as the 'Crown Jewels', has been shown to visitors to the Tower.
Today the Crown Jewels are exhibited in a magnificent new setting within the Waterloo Barracks. The Waterloo Barracks were built in 1845 on the site of the Grand Storehouse, a huge store and museum for arms and equipment that burned down in 1841 and was intended to house nearly one thousand men.
