The Tower of London boasts many historical gems within its depths. Head to Beauchamp (pronounced “Beecham”) Tower—a part of the inner defensive wall that once held high-ranking prisoners—and you’ll see graffiti carved into its walls.
The writings and images are from prisoners from the 16th and 17th centuries, many of whom were confined for political or religious reasons. The various carvings are much different from the type of graffiti you’d typically come across today.
