Why see it?
The Medieval Palace at the Tower of London contained fabulous interiors used by medieval kings and queens during their frequent but short visits to their most important fortress.
King Edward I’s financial accounts record a payment of ‘11 shillings and a penny for timber, boards and sawn panels for a bed for the lord King and for transporting it through England’.
This piece of information was our starting-point for re-creating Edward’s bed, and you can see it in the royal bedchamber in St Thomas’s Tower.
The little chantry off the bedchamber is one of the most peaceful and evocative spaces in the whole of the Tower of London.
