Archaeological evidence dates settlements in Tower Hill back to the Bronze age, as well as Roman times. It was also the place for many public executions, including that of Sir Thomas More in the 16th Century. It now rests on the eastern edge of London's financial district - between the Thames to the south, and the trendy east-end to the north.
