Tower of London was built by the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078. It is also to emphasis to the public that he is in charge now.

It is dedicated to Saint Peter as the story goes one foggy evening, a young fisherman called Aldrich on the River Thames saw a vision of Saint Peter near the site. This seems to be quoted to justify the gifts of salmon from Thames fishermen that the abbey received in later years. In the present was, the Fishmonger's Company still gives a salmon every year.
