Jewel Tower

The Jewel Tower, or ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’, was built around 1365 to house King Edward III’s treasures. One of only two buildings of the original Palace of Westminster to survive a fire in 1834, the tower features a 14th-century ribbed vault. It displays ‘Parliament Past and Present’, a fascinating exhibition about the history of Parliament.

The second floor now includes illustrated panels telling the story of this small but important building and the remains of a moat and medieval quay are still visible outside.
