The Tower of London has become established as one of the most popular tourist attractions in England today. It has been an important tourist attraction since Elizabeth 1st was on the thrown. There are many written accounts on the sights of London that foreign visitors wrote about. Its most popular attractions were the Royal Menagerie and displays of armour. The Crown Jewels also attracted a good deal of interest, they have been on public display since 1669 and are still a major draw today.
The Tower of London gained popularity with tourists through the 19th century, despite the opposition of the Duke of Wellington to visitors. Numbers became so high that by 1851 a purpose built ticket office was erected. By the end of the century, over 500,000 were visiting the castle every year.
Over the 18th and 19th centuries, many of the buildings were slowly adapted for other uses and demolished. Only the Wakefield and St Thomas Towers survived. The 18th century marked an increasing interest in Englands medieval past. One of the effects was the emergence of Gothic Revival architecture. In the Towers architecture, this was clear when the New Horse Armoury was built in 1825 against the south face of the White Tower. It featured elements of Gothic Revival architecture such as battlements. Other buildings were remodelled to match the style and the Waterloo Barracks.
Between 1845 and 1885 institutions such as the Mint which had inhabited the castle for hundreds of years were moved to other sites; many of the post medieval structures left vacant were demolished. In 1855, the War Office took over responsibility for manufacture and storage of weapons from the Ordnance Office, which was gradually phased out of the castle. At the same time, there emerged a greater and growing interest in the history of the Tower of London
