        Secrets of the Tower of London: Part 4

        In this segment of Secrets of the Tower of London, learn about the history of Tower Bridge, which was built in 1880 in a faux-Gothic style in an effort to blend in with the Tower of London as a tourist attraction. The clip also reveals how life changed at the Tower during WWII, with the drained moat serving as part of the war effort and the last execution taking place in the Tower in 1951. The ceremonial guards of the London landmark, the Yeoman Warders, are also introduced.
