Tower of London

You could easily spend a full day in the Tower. We had a wonderful walk through Southwark, past the Golden Hind and the Lord Mayor's residence, across Tower Bridge and into the Tower. They have regular guided tours and then you can wander around by yourself. Unfortunately you can't take photos of the Crown Jewels.

 

The White Tower

Walking over Tower Bridge. Such an elegant bridge!

One of the Beefeaters in "everyday" uniform.

The Royal Apartments in one corner of the outer walls.

That bridge again.

The Queens Apartments. I think the "chopping block" was in this area!

Another view of the White Tower.

Traitors Gate - it leads directly to the Thames.

The Golden Hind - Drake's ship. It is on the other side of the Thames from the Tower.

More of Tower Bridge.

Traitors Gate - again

The Royal apartments on the right and a Beefeater on the left - and a group of tourists in the foreground.

The Nordenfelt Gun - from Gallipoli

This says it all.

The bridge from the Tower

Walking by the White Tower towards the Crown Jewels tower.

The original moat.

This is Southwark Cathedral, just up from the Golden Hind and opposite the Tower

The Onion - the Lord Mayor's Residence - just across the tower Bridge from the Tower

The tower holding the Crown Jewels. You can't take photos of the jewels but the security does not seem too obvious.
