The Tower and Clink

This new tour includes a guided visit to The Clink! The name ‘Clink’ seems to have been attached to the prison in the 14th century.

One of the most commonly-argued derivatives is that of the sound of the blacksmith’s hammer closing the irons around the wrists or ankles of the prisoners, although the Flemish word ‘klink’ meaning ‘latch’ (perhaps referring to the latch on the gaol door) could also have influenced its attachment. Whatever the etymology, the prison subsequently bequeathed this name to all others, resulting in the development of the expression, “to be thrown in The Clink.”

 

Following your guided tour step into a restaurant around the corner for a 2 course meal with tea and coffee before entering the Tower Bridge Experience. From the high-level walkways take in stunning panoramic views and experience the thrill of seeing London life through the Glass Floor. Follow in the footsteps of the unsung heroes of Tower Bridge. Uncover their stories and soak in the atmosphere of the working Bridge in one of London’s true hidden gems: the magnificent Victorian Engine Rooms.

 

End your day here, or investigate Borough Market, which is just around the corner.
