The Tower of London. This is where they keep The Crown Jewels. Couldn’t get a photo of those! They were impressively sparkly, though. We got through before these long lines formed!
These guys make sure no one gets too friendly with The Crown Jewels.
Hydra making like a knight in the Ravens gift shop. Which had next to no raven paraphernalia.
Big old cannon outside The White Tower.
Loved this part of the World War I exhibit, where they superimposed modern images onto old photos.
I was excited to see the famous ravens. But sad to see them in such small enclosures. There’s a tradition that says the kingdom and the Tower will fall if there aren’t six ravens in residence. So of course, they imprision them!
Detail of a face in the sky.
The Tower Bridge from one of the walkways around the top of the fortress. See the laundry hanging out to dry? Who lives here?
We walked entirely around the battlements, going through narrow passages, up and down stairs. Lots of little rooms to discover.
I just liked that someone was in a meeting up there in the window.
The Tower Bridge under moody skies.
School kids on their way in as we restred outside. Loved hearing their excitement.
