13 Surprising Places Where Photography is Banned

Jewel House (home of the Crown Jewels)

London, UK

No, not those crown jewels – although you might want to be careful if you’re photographing those as well. No-one is allowed to take pictures of this breathtaking array of jewels, which are protected by bombproof glass at the Tower of London. All visitors are watched by a beady-eyed array of guards and more than 100 security cameras, so don’t get any funny ideas.

Pyongyang, North Korea

Before entering the mausoleum of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, visitors must check-in all their belongings apart from their wallet. They must then walk through a dust-blowing machine to ensure no dust is carried into the room where the former heads of state lie in their transparent crystal sarcophagi. Photography definitely isn’t allowed.
