The Jewel Tower was built around 1365 to house Edward III’s treasures and was known as the ‘King’s Privy Wardrobe’. One of only two buildings from the medieval Palace of Westminster to survive the fire of 1834, the tower features ornate ceiling carvings from the thirteenth century and a fourteenth-century ribbed vault. Displays include an exhibition about the history of Parliament.
