I'm planning a visit to London in the summer with my family and, of course, the Tower is top of my list! However, I was wondering if it is still possible to visit the scaffold site on Tower Hill or if this has long been built over? (I know there is a Tower Hill tube station so can't imagine there's much “green” area left). I know I probably sound a bit ignorant, but I've never been to London before so don't really know the geography! I'd just really love to see the last place George Boleyn stood before his death.

Looks like the answer is 'yes' and 'no'. There's a memorial built on the site. I was able to google-image search for the following easily:

Ring the bell and run. He hates that."
