The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

June 2022

Make Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee a celebration to remember with Historic Royal Palaces. 

We will be marking this never-before-seen landmark with a series of unique experiences across our palaces that you won’t want to miss.

The White Tower was begun in the reign of William the Conqueror (1066-87) and completed by 1100. The fortress was originally faced with huge blocks of pale marble-like Caen stone imported from Normandy. In 1636-8 the external appearance of the White Tower was significantly altered with the replacement of much of its cut-stone work and window surrounds with Portland stone. 

The primary role of the White Tower was as a fortress and stronghold but it also served as a royal residence and as the setting for major governmental and ceremonial functions.
