St Thomas' Tower, Traitors Gate and the Langthorn Tower

According to Alianore, Edward II spent time in the Langthorn Tower - maybe even with Piers? Unfortunately, the Langthorn Tower suffered a fire in the 1700s and has been restored. It is often used as the education room in the Tower. It's quite small, and surprised me that the king would occupy such a small tower. He would nothave been able to 'hold court' here - so it was possibly his private chamber.

I think you're right about it just being Ed's (and Piers'?) private chamber. Can't remember now what source I found that said Ed lived mostly in this tower, LOL!
