Treasures of the Crown

Lost by King John in quicksand, pawned twice, melted down and even stolen by the notorious rogue ‘Colonel’ Blood, the Crown Jewels have endured a turbulent history. Today these priceless treasures are safely housed at the Tower of London.

Central to the coronation and worn by the monarch on important state occasions, this breathtaking collection of jewels and ceremonial clothing is seen by visitors from all over the world, keen to catch a glimpse of these world-famous objects.
